Annabelle and the Snow Queen Express  
Santa Monica Playhouse Annabelle and the Snow Queen Express
 
Santa Monica Playhouse presents a brand new Rudie-DeCarlo Family Theatre Musical, ANNABELLE and the SNOW QUEEN EXPRESS, giving audiences a heart-warming perspective on fantasy and reality, sharing and caring, and the importance of family togetherness. A host of colorful Dickensian characters, led by a charmingly dotty old lady (or is she the Snow Queen in disguise?) are unceremoniously plunked into 2014, confronting the miracles and mysteries of modernity as they try to unthaw the frozen hearts of the MTV Generation and convince quirky teen Annabelle that you're never too old to believe in the magic of love and family. Come along on a topsy-turvy ride, featuring a magical train that actually moves, breathtaking Dickensian Steampunk costumes, and special effects that will transport you to an icy North Pole glitter freeze that can only be set right by joyous, warm hearted believers.

Your children will love the live retelling of Shel Silverstein's touching and tender parable as The Los Angeles Children's Theater performs The Giving Tree.

Through a boy and a loving apple tree, Silverstein's story follows the seasons of life from young child to old man, from joyous youth to self-centered adolescence, from somber adulthood to bittersweet old age. And each stage of love, loss, heartache and heartbreak is expressed through words, gestures, dance and music to delight both children and adults. Celebrate the season of giving with your little ones with The Giving Tree.
