Yellow Bubble Space
"This tale is indeed an adventure I am glad I have not missed."
Sadie Takes The Stage
"Visually stunning production that offers a thought-provoking twist on a classic fairy story... well worth a winter trip to Wimbledon."
The Family Stage
"Enjoyably loopy Christmas romp"
"Ingenious retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s story with a lot of emphasis on kindness, decency and redemption"
Gerda is on the magical quest of a lifetime. Her best friend Kai has disappeared with the mysterious Snow Queen, and if Gerda doesn’t rescue him soon, he’ll be trapped in an endless winter forever.
Come on an unforgettable and thrilling adventure where the strength of friendship is tested to its limits, and nothing is quite what it seems in the fantastical, frosty world of The Snow Queen.
Jude Christian’s ('Hamlet', 'Dick Whittington', National Theatre, 'Jack and The Beanstalk', Lyric Hammersmith) brand new family adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale is brought to life with songs, spectacular storytelling and a flurry of mythical magic.
Enter a wintry wonderland of imagination for the whole family at Polka this Christmas.
