A Magical Winter for All Ages: Strawberries in Winter

Strawberries in Winter
Written by Lindsay Price

Based on the folktale, The Twelve Months, by Aleksander Chodzko, Strawberries in Winter by Mrs. Evelyn Merritt is a fantastic Winter play for all ages.

Morozko has a Slavic winter tale for you. Who is Morozko, you ask? You may know him by his other name: Jack Frost.

Poor Marouckla is tormented by her mean stepmother and her horse-faced stepsister. They’re determined to make Marouckla’s life miserable. They send Marouckla up the mountain for fresh strawberries. But everyone knows strawberries don’t grow in winter.

Under the direction of Emily Steelman, the drama students at Eminence R-I High School in Eminence, MO transformed both their stage and their audience for all to enjoy a truly magical winter experience:

I really liked the story line of this play with Jack Frost narrating. One of our audience described the play as “a morbid twist on a Cinderella story.” If you have a combination of older actors and younger actors, this play would work great for you. 

Great job, Eminence R-I High School!
