The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen: The Dell’Arte Holiday Tour

November 24 – December 17


BLUE LAKE, CA: The Dell’Arte Company’s annual holiday show tour, now in its 37th year, ushers in the festive season with an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen. The timeless tale of a child’s spirit triumphing over impending darkness, The Snow Queen will begin its run in the Carlo Theatre on November 24 & 25 at 7:30 pm. Keeping with tradition, admissions for most performances are free thanks to the generous support of local schools, Wildberries Marketplace, Stephany Joy of Re/Max Humboldt Realty, Pierson Building Center, Coast Central Credit Union and Ramone’s Bakery and Cafe. The audience is asked to contribute non-perishable food items, which the cast collects and donates to local food banks in collaboration with local non-profit, Food for People.


When a magical mirror shatters and two pieces fall into the heart and eye of young Kai, his friend Gerda must embark on a journey of a lifetime to set things right and eventually embrace the power within her. The Snow Queen is an enthralling holiday spectacle for the whole family and features an assortment of magical characters, which include a trio of bumbling trolls, a talking tree and a flying reindeer. 

The Dell’Arte Company’s adaptation of The Snow Queen is directed by Dell’Arte’s Producing Artistic Director Michael Fields and is a bold re-telling of the classic holiday tale that comprises of original music and robust physical storytelling created and performed by this year’s international cast. Featured are: Matilda Lindström from Finland, Gaia Mencagli from Denmark and Gaby Haught, Eric Jones, Natashia Marshall, Chase Perkins, Fay Steddum and Jacob Timmons from the US.


Dell’Arte strives to make family holiday entertainment available to both rural and urban communities that rarely see live professional theatre. Venues range from large, lofty theatres to local elementary school cafeterias. The Dell’Arte Holiday Show reaches approximately 5,000 – 8,000 people each year, including many school-age children. This production will tour throughout Northern California, with stops in Orick, Arcata, McKinleyville, Eureka, Cave Junction, Klamath, Bridgeville, Scotia, Point Arena, and Trinidad.

SuperReal Performance

posted Nov 8, 2017, 7:35 AM by Tabatha Siemer   [ updated Nov 8, 2017, 7:36 AM ]

Mark your calendars for the RiverStars Performing Arts all original production of SUPERREAL.  The show is December 9th at 7:00 PM a​​nd 10th at 5:00 PM in the Lorna Byrne Middle School Cafeteria and tickets are pay-what-you-can.

Don’t miss your chance to support our youth onstage in this hilarious holiday romp about Scroogia, the Texas carpetbagger who has come to put our local economy asunder. Fortunately, Scroogia meets her match in Tom and Jerry, the local cartoon and comics shop owners. Now if they can just get her to laugh, they will free Cavetown from a villainous takeover. 
Stay for a talkback after the show when the artists and audience dive deeper into conversation about our town, social justice, and the importance of self-love rather than super(ficial)hero worship.

Please contact me with any questions.
Hope to see you there.  Spread the word!
