Ada, MN -- The Missoula Children’s Theater and the Ada Summer Children’s Theater will be presenting two shows on Friday, August 9th of their production of The Snow Queen at the Ada-Borup High School Auditorium. Students of all grade levels have been rehearsing hard all week for these two, hour long performances. Shayla Rodgers and Casey Papus of the Missoula Children’s Theater joined the KRJB Kaleidoscope program on Thursday to preview the show. Despite the similarity in name, Papus notes that its quite different from the very popular film of Frozen.

There is roughly 60 kids in this year’s Ada Children’s Summer Theater cast, which features unique characters such as the Snow Queen, Gerda, the Gardner Woman, Bae the Reindeer, a Yeti, princes and princesses, and lots of hobgoblins, snow animals, robbers, and snow chickens. Rodgers and Papus talk about what its like to have such a large cast.
