Preps Dance Company is bringing a blizzard to the Athens Theatre in DeLand this October. Their adaptation of an icy tale called Frosset rages onto the stage Saturday, Oct. 26, and Sunday, Oct. 27.
This frosty fairy tale, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of “The Snow Queen” and the popular animated film Frozen, explores the story of two siblings who are challenged by frozen magic and true love. Grab your coat, because this Preps Dance Company production is going to be an icy adventure.
The wintry tale focuses on a Norwegian kingdom and its queen, who was born with an unusual set of powers, and her normal sister. Both siblings enjoy the queen’s frigid powers as children, but as time passes and the queen grows, so do her powers.
Eventually, she is unable to control the magic within her, and accidentally strikes her sister.
As fear quickly becomes the queen’s enemy, she finds herself transformed into the monster she has always been afraid of becoming. Casting an icy spell over her kingdom, she tucks herself away from the dark and cold world of her own creation.
Follow Preps Dance Company’s Snow Queen (played by Haleigh Corbett) and Princess (Natalia Arico) through a journey filled with ice and snow. Will the queen learn how to control and conceal her magic? Will ice divide these two sisters? Will the princess be able to melt her sister’s icy heart? Or, will they realize that some people are worth melting for?
Find the answers amid the flurries, as Preps Dance Company presents Frosset at the Athens Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27.
