This fall the Creative Arts Department produced the premiere of “The Snow Queen,” a play with music based on Hans Christian Andersen’s story about a girl who travels barefoot in search of her childhood friend who was abducted by the Snow Queen.
The theatrical performance is a new project for Red Thread Arts. Supported and first presented as a rehearsed reading at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., sections of “The Snow Queen” were subsequently produced as a stage workshop during Culturemart 2013 at HERE in New York City.
The script and score were completed at Siena College this fall. The project that began over two years ago was brought to life at Foy Hall’s Beaudoin Theatre this November.
“It’s been a privilege to work closely with the Department of Creative Arts, Siena’s students and faculty,” director Jeff Mousseau said. “The work done here will, no doubt, have an indelible impact on the projects’s continued evolution.”
