Snow Queen, Mistletoe Market Coming to Cherokee Bluffs

By Jane Harrison
 
An Atlanta-area performance troupe is bringing an outdoor production of The Snow Queen to the amphitheatre of Cherokee Bluffs Park in Flowery Branch. The production by Serenbe Playhouse and accompanying Mistletoe Market is set for Dec. 16 at the popular South Hall park.
 
The play, based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale that inspired the Disney hit animated film “Frozen,” features music, stunning costumes, and make-up, plus snow fall at the end of the show, according to Stacey Dickson, President of the Lake Lanier Convention & Visitors Bureau. The CVB has a new partnership with the South Fulton theater company that performs all its shows outdoors.
 
“Their production company is starting to do traveling shows and recently scouted Hall County for sites. They fell in love with the gorgeous views and scenic setting at Cherokee Bluffs and our awesome Hall County Parks and Leisure office agreed to give this show a try,” Dickson said.
 
“Feedback we are receiving so far is very positive – the website had over 1,000 views in the first week,” Dickson said in late November. “Grandparents are especially excited to bring their little ones out to create a special holiday memory that lasts. We hope this will grow into an annual tradition for the park. We expect between 300 and 500 people but can certainly hold more in the park.”
 
The Mistletoe Market will feature holiday gifts, decor and specialty foods. Gates open at 10 a.m. with the show at 11:30 (50 minute show with no intermission) then the market will be open until 2 p.m. following the performance. There will be hot cocoa and other special treat vendors.
 
Dixon encouraged guests to bundle up and bring chairs and blankets to make a comfy perch for watching the show. As far as weather goes – the show is a go even through light rain – this is how Serenbe Playhouse conducts all their shows and they have a very successful track record, she said.
 
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Additional information: www.laniersnowqueen.com.
