‘A simple storyline and lively songs. Recommended!’
- MB, Head Teacher, Lancashire.
A magical winter musical about a couple who can't have children and long to have a child of their own. The Snow Child is based on a Russian folktale and the evocative music helps to conjure up a bit of Russian flavour! A very picturesque piece for this age group, with lovely dance opportunities. Easy to teach and to stage.
Each Christmas they make a crib for the village children to enjoy but one year they are so sad about not having a son or daughter that they make a Snow Child instead. The old couple are amazed and overjoyed when, magically, the Snow Child comes to life!
However, being made of snow, in the spring she melts away. The couple are devastated, and everyone in the village misses her throughout all the seasons of the coming year. But the old couple are amazed for a second time when the Snow Child returns the following winter and they build a new crib to celebrate, inviting the whole village to join in!
