LEWISTON — For the second year in a row The Public Theatre has had to cancel its annual Father-Daughter Valentine Ball to protect the health and safety of the community. But the theater instead is planning Play in the Snow, a skiing, snowboarding and tubing event for the whole family.

Play in the Snow will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 12, at Lost Valley on Lost Valley Road in Auburn. The event will include skiing, snowboarding, tubing, raffle baskets (featuring themes for adults and children), a 50/50 raffle, hot chocolate and cookies.

Lost Valley is typically closed for skiing and snow tubing on Saturday evenings, but the theater is renting out the entire mountain to allow for a family night of fun at a bargain price. The cost is $25 to ski or snowboard and $10 to snow tube.

Standard Lost Valley lift tickets are $36 and $46 for a weekend half day or Friday evening; tubing tickets are $16 per hour, according to a news release from the theater.

Play in the Snow will raise much-needed funds to bring live professional theater to Maine, and it supports the theater’s education and outreach programs. Throughout the pandemic, the theater has partnered with schools and libraries across Maine to bring the arts in the form of creative readings, video performances, and live virtual theater classes to children at no cost.

To inquire about sponsorship opportunities and/or group rates,  contact the theatre at 207-782-3200.
