Adventure Theatre’s Frosty the Snowman has got us excited for winter! A fun spin on the classic winter song, the play starts with the announcement of school cancellations in Germantown, Gaithersburg, Rockville, Bethesda, and of course, Glen Echo. Friends meet to enjoy all the staples of a snow day: ice skating, snow angels, a very silly snowball fight and of course, building a snowman.
Chaos ensues after the kids place a magic hat upon his head. Frosty comes to life and brings some seriously sick dance moves, that my son is currently trying (and failing) to recreate as I write this.
This is a very physical play, with almost constant gymnastics, step-dancing, ice skating, and action scenes! It was also very, very silly; my kids couldn’t look away or stop laughing!
I always look forward to the shows put on by Adventure Theatre Company! The high energy and enthusiasm exuding from the crew and talent always make for a fun afternoon with my kids, who always leave with smiles on their faces! Frosty the Snowman is recommended for all ages and runs from November 17th until December 31st.
