In Jack Frost: Snow Kidding!, veteran New York-based variety performer and comedian David Engel brings to life the world-famous, winter sprite and drums up holiday cheer in this engaging variety show that features slapstick antics, cartoon-like sound effects, bubble play, musical bell chimes, adept magic, and puppetry.

Tickets are available through the LU Box Office. Attendees also will be able to enjoy complimentary hot chocolate and cookies following the show.
