Opening night of the Redmoon Winter Pageant captured the attention of wide eyed children on the floor and equally the mesmerized adults in the bleachers.
Set atop a massive glacier, the love stories are brought to life by a cast of more than 40 performers and a pair of explorers – in search of a precious mineral that will bring them great worldly wealth, but a disagreement forces them to part ways. On their separate journeys across the massive icescape, the explorers encounter a series of imaginative mythological and archetypal creatures, both real and imagined – from shadow puppet dinosaurs and deer backpacks to two larger-than-life Yeti in their hydraulic-powered ice cave home – who tell their unique stories about different kinds of love.
After the show the kids were allowed to meet the performers and even play with the puppets.
