The Snow Queen

Local students who participated in Missoula Summer Camp at the Alhambra Theatre will be showing off their hard work as they perform The Snow Queen. Tickets are available at .

Although set in a “land of colored ice,” this classic tale will warm your heart in its illustrative retelling by a group of fun-loving, imaginative hobgoblins. As they depict the journey of a young girl and her quest to find her best friend, you may just find yourself believing in malevolent mirrors, yetis, talking reindeer, and snow chickens! Blizzards can come at any moment, so strap on some snowshoes and get ready to discover what it takes to overcome chilling obstacles, keep resilience alive, and melt down the Snow Queen’s icy walls.

Thanks to sponsor Flynn Enterprises for making the camp and performance possible.
