Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s tale by Jenny Wake
When Kaj is stolen away by the Snow Queen, his best friend Gerda sets out on a perilous journey to the North Pole, determined to find him and bring him home. Along the way she encounters a wicked band of grubby robbers, a garden of enchanted flowers, a prince and princess and their elegantly snobby courtiers, a feisty reindeer, some wise-cracking crows, a mysterious Arctic woman, an army of fierce snow warriors and, of course, the ice-cold Snow Queen.
The Snow Queen is about a young girl’s quest to rescue her friend. It is about the strength we each have inside us — the kind of courage we may not discover until we are most afraid. It is about the power of true friendship.
This enchanting production has been described by newspaper reviewers as “pure magic” and “a visual stunner”.
