Play of the Month

Snow QueenHow Hans, Christian & Anderson
Melted the Snow Queen

By Lisa Like-Stokely,
Wright Writers of Dayton member

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 Heny 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.

Play of the Month

Babes In Toyland
Nov. 30 – Dec. 9, 2018

Author: Rebecca Ryland


Description by Heartland Plays.

This children’s melodrama that takes us to Mother Goose Land and Toyland.  Our heroine is Mistress Mary Quite Contrary, who has her heart set on marrying the heroic Alan.  But Alan’s uncle, the villainous Barnaby, is set on marrying her himself, threatening foreclosure on her mother if she refuses.  Mary escapes to the mysterious Toyland through the dangerous Spider Forest, where Alan finds and saves her.  Barnaby pursues Mary and Alan to Toyland, bringing the whole gang of Mother Goose Land characters with him.  There we encounter the magical mystery of Toyland as we meet the Master Toymaker and his quirky assistants Grumio and Marmaduke.  When Barnaby gets his hands on the Master Toymaker’s machine and creates a toy soldier army, it seems all is lost.  In an exciting climax, all the Toyland and Mother Goose Land characters work together to foil his plans and set everything right again.
