Dear Friends and Supporters,

Today we made the tough decision to cancel the Alaska dates for the world premiere of Snow Child.

Perseverance Theatre stands by its reputation to create professional, high-quality theatre productions. Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to meet the logistical needs this beautiful production deserves in order to stay true to our mission and the vision of the show.

We are grateful to Director Molly Smith and to all our friends at Arena Stage for working with us on this Alaskan story, and for making such a beautiful musical out of Eowyn Ivey's novel. We regret we couldn’t successfully bring Snow Child to Alaska this season and will look for other ways to share this adaptation of Eowyn Ivey’s novel with Alaskans in the future.

If you are holding a ticket for a Snow Child performance, we will contact you with options for refunding or repurposing your ticket cost.

Thank you so much for your continued support of theatre by and for Alaskans.

Perseverance Theatre

A new roots-infused musical.

Based on the book by Eowyn Ivey
Book by John Strand
Music by Bob Banghart and Georgia Stitt, Lyrics by Georgia Stitt

Directed by Molly Smith

Eowyn Ivey’s debut novel The Snow Child, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, is reborn as a magical new musical that dances on the edge of legend. In the 1920s Alaskan wilderness, a couple reeling from the loss of an unborn child struggles to rebuild their lives. Everything changes suddenly when they are visited by a wild, mysterious girl who embodies the dark woods that surround their cabin. In this beautiful and violent land, things are rarely as they appear, and what the snow child teaches them will ultimately transform them all. Featuring a vibrant and haunting score that combines backcountry bluegrass and contemporary musical theatre, this world premiere musical is as evocative as the land it depicts.
