The Gift of Winter
Directed by Deborah Voss
Choreography by Marie Arts
Musical Direction by Brandon Joseph
The Gift of Winter takes us back to a time before snow, when winter was nothing but a horribly cold, barren season. Fed up with the bleakness, Mayor Maude and her delegation, followed by two gung-ho townspeople, Ben and Carl, set off to confront Mr. Winter. Along the way they meet 3 spritely, dancing trees and are threatened by an attack from the beastly Abominables. When they finally meet Mr. Winter he is stubborn and mean, but the sweet spirits of Ben and Carl melt his heart. For the first time Mr. Winter laughs and cries and suddenly snow is created! The journey is successful as the delegation finds out the answer is SNOW!
