The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen is a weird and wondrous vision of puppetry, projections and song based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen. Adapted and directed by Cherry Artistic Director Samuel Buggeln with puppets from Scott Hitz of PuppHitz, The Snow Queen is a fascinating voyage for adults and younger people alike. Andersen’s dreamlike and imagistic tale tells the story of Greta, a young girl on a mission to rescue her best friend Kai from the clutches of the Snow Queen, encountering along the way a chatty raven, a feisty robber girl, a friendly reindeer, and a host of other curious characters.


This was a collaborative production between The Cherry Arts of Ithaca, NY and Scott Hitz. The Cherry continues to develop and perform this show during the holiday season.
