“The Snow Queen” is the story of a girl's devotion to her true love. It is based on a story by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. The Snow Queen is determined to prolong winter. She and the Hobgoblin make an evil mirror that reflects back only what's ugly and hateful, but when it shatters into millions of tiny pieces the fragments blow in the wind and get into people's eyes and hearts so they can see only the bad in everything and they become ''cold like a lump of ice''. Two childhood friends, Kai and Gerda, live next door to each other. One winter's day, Kai is struck by pieces of the shattered mirror and, now cold hearted, meets the Snow Queen who steals him away. Gerda, with her true love for Kai, sets off and treks north, in her quest to rescue him.
It’s behind you, an evil game show, a traditional winter festival, magic, Dame and Silly Billy, family jokes and dancing; this family pantomime will appeal to all.
