Cherry and Spoon’s 2015 Wrap-up: What I’m Most Grateful For

The Snow Queen at Park Square Theatre: following the delightful new trend of musicals in which cast and band are one, eight actor/musician/singer/dancers told Hans Christian Anderson’s charming winter tale with joyful innovation. It was a truly magical and spellbinding evening of storytelling.”

-Jill Schafer




Director Doug Scholz-Carlson gives enchanting life to Michael Peter Smith’s musical adaptation, with a fine cast featuring voices as pure as falling snow. Most of the lines are sung, and the simple melodies fit the tale’s guileless nature.

-Renee Valois, Pioneer Press

“If there is virtuosity in this “Snow Queen,” it comes from the sum of all these things. … Scholz-Carlson and his cast construct a spirit that invades us with Andersen’s fantasy.”

-Graydon Royce, Minneapolis StarTribune
