Jack Frost
Jack Frost
Adapted by James Still from a Russian folktale called "Frost".

Cast: 2m., 4w. This play features a young heroine named Martha who lives with her evil stepmother and two ugly stepsisters. Sound familiar? Though the similarities to "Cinderella" are undeniable, part of what's so enchanting and satisfying about Jack Frost are the ways in which it borrows from the classic story while reimagining it, infusing it with a spirituality and a central character who takes charge of her own destiny. Because of her heroic determination and passion for living, Martha warms the heart of crafty Jack Frost. Theatrical, poetic, economic in its storytelling, this play is about how kindness and generosity are their own reward. Critics have praised the inventiveness of the play and its surprising twists and imagistic unity. Originally produced at the Omaha Theater for Young People, Artistic Director James Larson writes, "James Still has created a vibrant and enduring adaptation that honors the roots of the story yet speaks to today's audiences with the lucidity and poignancy that have come to be his trademarks as an award-winning playwright." Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
