The Howell Limelight Theatre Presents: Snow Angel
The Howell Limelight Theatre is set to present the 2019 production of David Lindsay-Abaire’s play Snow Angel which is set in the town of Deerpoint, Vermont during the biggest blizzard in 107 years. Just as the teenagers begin celebrating a day of no school , their teacher announces a special journal assignment to be completed over the Snow Day. Out of the snow, and the assignment, comes a mysterious girl named Eva. Eva needs help searching for answers but no one is quite sure what the questions are or where she comes from. 15 confused teenagers do their best to help Eva but her story is truly baffling.
Snow Angel is a funny and eerie tale of teen discovery, mischief, and acceptance told through journal entries and character interactions. Come join us and help us to figure out the mystery surrounding Eva.
Evening performances will be Friday, April 5th & Saturday, April 6th, at the FHHS Auditorium, 7001 Highway 94 South, St. Charles. The doors open at 6:30 pm with performances beginning at 7:00 pm each night. A matinee performance will be held on Sunday, April 7th, doors open at 1:30 pm with a performance at 2:00 pm. Tickets are available at the door for $5.
