City Parks Foundation Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre Presents YETI, SET, SNOW!
City Parks Foundation is proud to announce the upcoming debut of original story and production Yeti, Set, Snow! at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park. The show will open Tuesday, November 13th for fans of all ages and run throughout the Winter season, ending on Sunday, February 24th, 2019.
Yeti, Set, Snow! tells the story of a young girl named Widget, and her friend, Twig, who encounter a yeti named Pascetti on the first snow day of the winter season. Pascetti, who lives on a mountain top 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.
"We are thrilled to bring this original production, perfectly timed for the winter season to an all-ages audience at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre," said Executive Artistic Director, Erika Elliott. "Kids and kids-at -heart, will love the original characters and seeing Yeti, Set, Snow! in the charming and historic cottage setting in Central Park. The story teaches the important value of friendship through a winterland adventure."
"Yeti, Set, Snow! is a delightful, wintry tale and I am pleased to add it to our repertoire," said Artistic Director, Bruce Cannon. "This show will be the directorial debut of our puppeteer, Julia Darden, and will feature new marionette puppets, scenery, and a score designed to entertain audiences of all ages."
