Lex Fun 4 Kids Review

My family took our first trip to a Lexington Children’s Theatre performance to see the Snow Queen at the Opera House.  Wow, first let me tell you how beautiful it is in there.  The ornate décor made us feel like we were royalty and it really set the stage for the production that took place there.

Everyone was so friendly; from the box office to the people who directed us to our seats.  I was not surprised then, that after the performance, that the cast and crew were just as friendly.  I felt like they were extremely welcoming, and wanted our feedback on the performance.  It was excellent!

The Snow Queen is based on the Hans Christian Andersen classic story (Click here for an Amazon link to purchase the book) about a young girl on a quest to find her friend Kai, as she begins to realize how much she loves him.  Her journey makes her brave and as her quest becomes more difficult, Gerda perseveres even more.

The scenery on the stage was amazing and I can’t imagine how they put it all together to make such a wonderful production.  They used the props and scenery to help tell the wonderful story of friendship and self discovery while Gerda looked to rescue her love, Kai.

One of the best parts of the play involved wolves.  I could not get over the actors wearing these wolf puppets that moved around so realistically.   You can see the photo of the actors wearing these wolf sleeves but when they were on stage it seemed like they were actually wolves moving.  They were my favorite!

The story line was beautiful and the way everything flowed from the beginning to the end was out of this world.  The choreography of how everyone moved on stage was my favorite part.

The play is recommend for ages 7+.  I brought my 6 year old because I’m a rule breaker like that, and she is a bit of a scaredy cat.  She didn’t yell out (like some preschool aged kids did) but she grabbed my arm and refused to look at some of the characters at the end of the show.  Use your own discretion for the age guide, as there were some violent parts that could scare the younger crowd.

After the show, one of my 8 year old’s favorite parts was meeting the cast and crew. They were so gracious to pose for pictures, sign our playbill and ask what our favorite parts of the show were.  The entire atmosphere made us ready for the next show.  We can’t wait to see the next LCT performance! Our family is feeling overwhelmed with “stuff” this season and we have now decided that we’ll be gifting LCT tickets this year for the family experience instead of more clutter in our home.
