SNOWCATCHER written and performed by Becky Boesen
December 3, 2017 - December 4, 2017
In the winter of 1888 a ferocious blizzard rips through the prairie without warning, leaving thousands of children struggling to find their way safely home from school. Six year-old Hattie is stranded in the blizzard, somewhere between “a dream and here with me now.” She is driven by a haunting vision: her secret friend is trapped in the storm. Hattie knows what happens to children in a blizzard. One touch from the SNOWCATCHER will turn them into ice! Will she be able to save her friend without meeting the SNOWCATCHER?
Perfect for all audiences, SNOWCATCHER is a tribute to the unbreakable spirit of the American Homesteader, and to all those who came before them.
SNOWCATCHER will have its world premiere at the Midwest Theater on March 30, 2017, at 7:30 p.m., followed by student matinees and community engagement activities on March 31 and April 1.
