Lisa Stokely

How Hans, Christian & Anderson Melted the Snow Queen

by Lisa Like-Stokely 
Approx. Playing Time: 90 Min.
Description from the website heartlandplays.com

Somewhere between Camelot and modern day, between IPADs and poisoned Apples, between ballet and uptown funk, this fractured fairy tale brings the classic characters of Hans Christian Anderson to life. Thumbelina, the not so tiny dancer, who is transformed into a beautiful ballerina; Jenny, the diamond studded and care free Nightingale (Mae West character); Heny, the ugly duckling turned obnoxious comedian (a cross between Henny Youngman and Groucho Marx); Sunny and Share, the dynamic singing duck duo topping the charts at Swan Lake; the directionally challenged Princess Gardenia who unexpectedly finds romance; Bruno, the valiant tin soldier who dances hip-hop; and the appalling proclivities of the robe shedding Emperor, are all re-imagined into this delightful play for the whole family. Audiences will be pleasantly surprised to recognize entertainers from the past and present. Laugh along and find out how a diverse group of fairy tale characters and a trio of ogres work together to save the Snow Queen from her diabolical fiancé.
