SNOW: Whistler, the Musical - Program

Program for "SNOW - Whistler: The Musical", a play performed in Whistler in 2009 and hosted by the Whistler Arts Council [now Arts Whistler]. The pamphlet contains a foreword about the musical, a cast and crew list, information about the actors and director, acknowledgements, and a separate audience feedback sheet.

According to the Pique Newsmagazine, "The two-act musical traces the arc of a season in Whistler, following the protagonist, Yuki, a Japanese pro snowboarder who comes to Whistler to train for the Core Games. In the process, she becomes intertwined in illicit love affairs, experiences serious sibling rivalry with her older and more traditional brother, Hiro, and has to survive a season of snow drought in staff housing ... She's joined by the token Prairie boy, an Australian and a Quebecois for a season that none of them will ever forget."
