Strawberries, music, and The Ice Princess take center stage this first weekend in June.
Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival once more fills the theaters at DeSales University, 2755 Station Ave., Center Valley, PA, with a mix of Shakespeare and other plays for the summer. The Ice Princess opens the season this Friday, June 2, 2017 at the Schubert Theater on campus, running through August 5, 2017. Adapted from the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale, this play is meant for families with children ages “three through tween.”
With a charming cast of forest friends, a young princess brings the warmth of healing to the cold—and discovers her own strength as she seeks to help a loved one. An enchanting new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen designed to delight families with kids from three to tween. Children can get a front row seat for the fun with on-stage carpet seating, and everyone can meet the cast after every performance for autographs and pictures.
(The musical Evita opens on the Main Stage on June 14th, and Shakespeare’s As You Like It takes over that stage on July 20th, 2017. Full list of this summer’s PA Shakespeare Festival productions can be found here.)
