"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! 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.

"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."

The enchanting Swedish architecture and craftsmanship of the Swedish Cottage which was suggestive of a model schoolhouse caught the eye of Central Park creator Frederick Law Olmsted, who brought it to Central Park in 1877. A traveling marionette company was founded in 1939 and in 1947 the Swedish Cottage became home to the company. In 1973, a permanent theater was constructed inside the Swedish Cottage, designed for marionette performances. Since then, hundreds of thousands of children and families from around the world have enjoyed its original productions. Under the direction of City Parks Foundation, the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre and CityParks PuppetMobile continues to thrill audiences from around the world, entertaining upwards of 65,000 people each year.
