Listen Online! Through The Looking Glass – Episode 6: The Snow Queen, Part 2 of 2

Performer: 

Marsha Rehns

Crew:

Dialogue editing by Maurice Malde.

Sound effects editing and final mixing by William R. Coughlan.

Post-production services provided by Tohubohu Productions, LLC

Director’s Notes:

As referenced in part one of “The Snow Queen,” Han Christian Andersen’s version is very different from Disney’s “Frozen,” which is in part why we love bringing you the original versions (or very close to the original).

Here you’ll hear a whole host of interesting characters and situations that give the fairy tale its own distinct flavor, even as you get many familiar themes.

Director’s Notes:

We offered our company members the opportunity to read one of their favorite folk takes and Marsha Rehns, whom many of you may recall is the narrator in Quorum, was the first to come back with a suggestion: “The Snow Queen,” by Hans Christian Andersen.

Many of you may know that Disney’s “Frozen” is based on this fairy tale, but I think you’ll find this worth a listen, not only from the verve Marsha brings in the telling, but because the story is so very different. One thread that remains, however, is the connection and love between the two siblings.

May the Fourth Be With You! Star Wars Giveaway Time

We’re racing to get stuff ready for our 2020 season, but as folks on our mailing list know, we’re squeezing in one more giveaway before then.

And considering the week we’re in, it only made sense to do a Star Wars-themed giveaway.

For those of you who don’t know about the giveaways, we band together with a bunch of other independent creative folk, pick a bunch of goodies around a theme that we’d love to win ourselves — and then we put it out into the social media world. At the end of this week, someone wins all the goodies listed below.

So many of us here at JAT grew up with Star Wars and we thrilled to The Mandalorian this past Fall. Plus, listeners of Rogue Tyger have noted there’s a little bit of Captain Solo in Reg Macorum, and hey, next season they’ll be spending more time on the Frontier, what in the Star Wars galaxy would be the Outer Rim. So this giveaway just felt right.

So if you’re tempted by this giveaway, sign up by this Friday, May 8th before 6:30pm ET, because that’s when it ends.
