The Snow Queen

A magical, memorable adventure of friendship and self-discovery

17 Nov - 4 Feb

Main Stage Ages
5 - 11

Written by Hans Christian Andersen

Adapted by Mike Kenny

Kai and Gerda are best friends. Not brother and sister but as close as if they were. Together, with their friends, they reimagine the thrilling adventure of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter fairy-tale.

Let your imagination soar as a dusty attic is transformed into the Snow Queen’s icy palace, and follow their epic journey of self-discovery, as they try to save Kai from the icy spell of the Snow  Queen’s cold kiss. Can Gerda melt his heart before he forgets her forever?

Running time: Approximately 1 hour 35 minutes (including interval)
