With Cei as her helper, The Snow Queen has a chilling plan: to freeze the hearts of all living things and rule supreme over a world of snow and ice. Only little Gerda, Cei’s childhood friend, believes he can still be rescued and sets out on a life-changing journey to save Cei and defeat the Snow Queen.
“What distinguishes this show from much Christmas fare is that is never patronizes its young audience, or takes the obvious route when a more imaginative one is available. Way’s writing has a lightness about it that works delightfully. This is a magical story, very well told.” –The Guardian, UK
“Funny, sometimes frightening and hugely entertaining. The Snow Queen is wonderful family entertainment for the festive season.” -South Wales Argus
“A wonder-world of magic and invention that carries you off whatever your age.” –British Theatre Guide
“Charles Way’s adaption strikes just the right balance between frightening and fun. The perfect winter show for children.” -The Western Mail
