Alaska stories: Hum along to 'The Snow Child'

A musical adaptation of Ivey's tale of struggling Alaskan homesteaders during the 1920s will premiere in April 2018 at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., in a co-production with Perseverance Theatre of Alaska. Well-known Alaskan roots musician Bob Banghart is helping to compose the bluegrass-inspired score.

After the world premiere, "The Snow Child" will head to Anchorage and Juneau, Alaska for performances in May and June.
