Building on a fifteen year history of musical theatre, Festival Players are thrilled to take an ambitious step in their commitment to musical storytelling by developing a brand new musical for the main stage at Festival Place.
Synopsis: Once upon a time in a place not too different from your own, the most peculiar season came to pass. For you see on this year, when the time arrived for the first frost of winter, none came.
This brand new musical follows the heart warming story of Elly, a shop owner who has a brush with the well know character Jack Frost. When Jack visits Elly’s shop he looses his power to bring winter. The only option to get it back is to work with Elly to save her shop from permanently closing.
With loveable characters and catchy music, you will be left entranced by the magic of theatre.
