Ideal for ages 4-9 and their families. Based on the book by Ariane Hofmann-Maniyar. Adapted by Nicole McNulty. Directed by Robbie Harrison. Snow in the Jungle/ Nieve en la jungla is produced with permission from Child’s Play (International) Ltd.

Nieve loves her tundra friends, snowy hills, and polar treats. When her mom gets a new job far away, suddenly Nieve 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 feels 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.

A Nieve le encantan sus amigos de la tundra, los cerros nevados, y los postres polares, pero cuando su mamá consigue un nuevo trabajo, Nieve tiene que dejar todo lo que conoce. En su nuevo hogar, la vegetación crece larga y verde, los animales comen una extraña fruta amarilla con una cáscara, y hace calor. Mucho, mucho calor. Esta osita polar descubre la ansiedad de mudarse a un nuevo lugar, donde el abrazo de su mamá es lo único que sigue igual. Esta obra bilíngüe inglés-español sirve para promover la pertenencia junto a celebrar la generosidad de otros, y ofrecer a los jóvenes una oportunidad de imaginarse como un oso polar en la jungla.
