Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre Open For Additional Shows During Midwinter Recess
For families looking for unique activities with their children this Midwinter Recess, the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre is the place to be. Families can find joy and adventure with young Widget and Twig on their first snow day with Yeti, Set, Snow! - an original story and marionette production produced by the City Parks Foundation. The Cottage will be open the entire week of this year's Midwinter Recess, offering three shows a day February 17th through February 23rd.
Yeti, Set, Snow! tells the story of a young girl named Widget, and her friend, Twig, who encounter a yeti named Pascetti and pet cat, Tinsel Kitty, on the first snow day of the winter season. Pascetti, who lives on a mountaintop nearby, dislikes the snow. Through songs and snow day activities, Pascetti discovers not only that snow can be fun, but also learns the value of friendship.
Ticket prices for Yeti, Set, Snow! are: $8 - children under 12 years of age and $12 - all others. Tickets are available online atwww.cityparksfoundation.org/arts/swedish-cottage-marionette-theatre and also at the door when available. Yeti, Set, Snow! is perfect for families with young children ages 3-8.
