"The Snow Queen": A journey through ice and snow, shadow and light

Whenever beloved Danish author Hans Christian Andersen sat down to tell one of his favorite stories, he’d usually pull out a piece of paper and a pair of scissors. “He’d create these really intricate cut-outs,” director Philip Valle said, snipping silhouettes of people, flowers and fanciful beasts. Cuesta College strives for a similar effect with its ambitious new production, “The Snow Queen,” based on Andersen’s icy tale of love, courage and the magic of friendship. The play opens Friday at Cuesta’s Cultural and Performing Arts Center.
