Snow in the Jungle – Nieve en la jungla
Based on the book by Ariane Hofmann-Maniyar
Adapted by Nicole McNulty | Projections Design
CHILDREN’S MUSEUM & THEATRE OF MAINE | OCT. 8 – NOV. 3, 2022

Snow loves her tundra friends, snowy hills, and polar treats. When her mom gets a new job far away, suddenly Snow must leave everything that she knows. In her new home, vegetation grows thick and green, animals eat strange yellow fruit with a peel, and it is hot. Very, very hot. This little polar bear finds her way through the anxieties of moving to a new place where “only her mother’s hug felt the same as always.” This bilingual English & Spanish play is intended to foster belonging, celebrate the generosity of others, and offer young audiences a chance to imagine themselves as a Polar Bear in the Jungle. Ideal for ages 4-9 and their families.
