“The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Andersen

We went to a delightful presentation of ‘The Snow Queen’ at Sholom Park today!

It was a gorgeous day (a little overcast but in the 70s) and the actors gave their best performance.

It was fun to meet them and get some autographs!

I even got to hold the robber’s sword!

I love all of the books by this author and have a small collection of them that I bought at a thrift store (you knew I was going to say that, didn’t you?)

what a special day Diane, I miss living in towns where events like this take place. Oh I love living in the boonies at the lake and prefer that, but sometimes I would like to see things

Looks like so much fun.

Donna said...

I guess I've been living under a rock because I've never heard of the book, LOL. It looks like a neat thing, to attend a play out in the park!

How fun! I love his fairytales and when we were kids we had a set of books with the 3-D covers (so new back then)!

There's something poetic about seeing the Snow Queen in 70-degree weather!! Great story and I'm sure the play was just wonderful. XOXO

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I'm a lover of fairy tales and think that at one time or another I've read all of Hans Christian Andersen's stories but have none of his books. How lucky for you to have found so many and at a thrift store at that. :0)

That looks so fun Diane! Never heard of it. Looks like you are enjoying the festive holiday season.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

This is my dream . . . to celebrate Christmas where it's WARM! LOL - what an absolutely delightful way to spend the day! You look adorable in the picture :)

Vee said...

Were they able to make you think it was winter and cold? I don't know if I've read "The Snow Queen."

Diane Writes said...

I never tried watching a play outdoors. The experience is surely the best. Meeting other people while enjoying the performances.

Btw, I love your photo in re pajamas. You look so merry and happy :)

Have a great week namemate!

Hi Diane
I'm glad you're toughing it out in that heat while I'm freezing up here. :-)
What a neat idea to have a play outside like that, thanks for sharing it.

Love your header, btw, it makes me smile and bounce a bit as I walk out...

I don't think I am familiar with this story, but the costumes are wonderful. Looks like it was a great time!

I've never read the book, Diane. It sure looks like you had a great day. You have the most fun!!

I can't say that I have ever read that collection of books - but it looks like it was a great day and performance!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

How wonderful, and what a great Christmas memory that is.

I love the cut out white trees in the background,hmmmm would love some slightly smaller for a Christmas display.

What a lovely place to watch a play. So nice that the weather was warm and you had a great time. Wonderful photos. Have a great week ahead.

What a fun day you had! Makes for a great memory of the holidays!

W. Latane Barton said...

I've never read that book... oh my, now you have me on a mission. Sounds like it would be wonderful at this time of year.

Peggy Jones said...

I remember reading some of those to my children. I am familiar with most of them but what fun to see it interpreted in a play. Merry Christmas to you and all your loved ones.

I don't think I have ever read this book - I might have to look out for it. Perhaps stories about snow don't do well here in hot summer Australia. LOL. Looks like you had a lovely day.
Have a wonderful week. I am linking up to you through Mosaic Monday.

podso said...

I have not read the Snow Queen. It would be hard to think snow on a warm day like this in NC--even muggy. Probably just like where you are. It looks like it was a fun day!

Ricki Treleaven said...

Activities like this make the season special. :D What a nice day!!!

xo,

Absolutely my idea of the only kind of 'snow' I want to experience during the Christmas season. Looks like a wonderful family event and your photos sparkle with the spirit of the season.
