Following the 2016 hit production of A Christmas Carol, the award-winning company Blessed Unrest returns to the New Ohio this holiday season with a contemporary riff on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, tailored for the entire 21st century family (ideal for children 7 and up). This story of a fearless young woman on a quest to save her friend from a frozen world devoid of feelings features the troupe’s signature physicality, magical transformations, extravagant costumes, and modern humor. Written by Matt Opatrny, directed by Jessica Burr, and developed by Blessed Unrest in a year-long New Victory LabWorks residency, The Snow Queen presents the title character as a metaphor for the cool allure of modern technology.
The production stars longtime company collaborators Rich Brown, Tatyana Kot, Celli Pitt, and Joshua Wynter, as well as Nancy McArthur and Todd Grace who mark their stage debut with Blessed Unrest. The production features costume design by Sydney Maresca (Hand to God on Broadway); sound design by Beth Lake (The Great Comet of 1812 and The Play That Goes Wrong on Broadway); scenic design by Sam Vawter; and lighting design by Jay Ryan.
