The Snow Queen
Based on the haunting fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, The Snow Queen recounts a girl's harrowing journey to young adulthood, in which she overcomes desperate adversity with a loving heart. In her fantastic travels, the girl encounters a garden of talking flowers, a dangerous band of robbers, ice beasts---and the beautiful, evil Snow Queen herself.
The production features dozens of large and elaborate puppets created through a series of free workshops for young adults led by The Mudlark Puppeteers. The participants fashion children, animals, demons and flowers who people the world of the Snow Queen, and enact the adventure.
The Mudlark Puppeteers are the resident company of 9th Ward's The Mudlark Public Theatre. This group is comprised of members of The Black Forest Fancies, including co-founder Pandora Andrea Gastelum. Miss Gastelum co-authored, designed and performed in the past Nola Fringe productions of "The Tragical Ballad of Black Bonnet" and "The Pomology of Sweetness and Light," which was awarded a grant from the Jim Henson Foundation in 2009.
