The elves who make the winter snow, have been kidnapped by the evil Ice Goblin. Is this the end of snow as we know it? Not if Toby, a snow-loving little boy, has his way. Join Toby on his adventure as he tries to save the Snow Elves from the clutches of the selfish Ice Goblin and restore snow to the world. Czech Black Puppetry brings a magical element making this a production not to be missed. The puppeteers, normally visible, dress totally in black to blend into the background. The puppets wear light-catching fabric, making them appear as if they are moving on their own. Perfect for the winter season, the black light illusions and family friendly nature will warm the hearts of all audiences.
