An enchanting and glittering new theatre adventure based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story performed by an exceptional cast of actor musicians.

The Snow Queen is the story of Gerda who sets off an epic adventure to find her friend Kai. It’s a journey which will ultimately lead her to the Snow Queen’s palace. On her way she will meet extraordinary characters and visit magical places.







"Stylistically daring" The Stage

"A treat for children and adults alike, let The Snow Queen transport you to another world." Western Mail (4 stars)

"If you want a sprinkling of snow-covered enchantment this Christmas, this is the festive family show for you." Buzz Magazine (4 stars)

"A sumptuous Yuletide treat for the whole family"
"Cecilia Carey’s inventive sets evoke myriad locations from an eternally-summery garden to an ice palace worthy of Elsa, the season-spanning vistas animated by the atmospheric sound and lighting design...and inventive costuming (the Bandit Queen’s ensemble is particularly eye-catching), not to mention the snow near-perpetually falling from the heavens. Get The Chance (4.5 stars)

"Cecilia Carey's unfussy but effective set elements effortlessly transport us between suburbia and the realm of fairy tales" (British Theatre Guide)
