ATLANTA -- Opposites attract in this charming tale of unrequited love. Stan the Lovesick Snowman plays at the Center for Puppetry Arts Jan. 2 – Feb. 2, 2014. Stan’s adorable story begins after a chance encounter with a dog that has been sent outside in the wintry cold. The dog tells the snowman about a warm stove inside the house, and with a “crack-crackle” in his heart, Stan falls in love with the wood-burning beauty. The unlikely romance, doomed from the start, is only the beginning in this hilarious and heartwarming tale as Stan later discovers that a young snowwoman is swooning over him as well.
Adapted and directed by the Center’s artistic director, Jon Ludwig, Stan the Lovesick Snowman is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s short story “The Snow Man.”
