One of the most beautiful of all fairy tales, the timeless appeal of The Snow Queen lies in its persuading us that life is truly magical.
In Hans Christian Andersen’s play, the wicked Snow Queen casts her icy spell on the world, turns young Kay’s heart to ice, and takes him away as her eternal prisoner to her Ice Palace at the very top of the world.
Gerda, Kay’s friend, must journey forever north and brave many dangers in her attempt to save Kay and break Winter’s grip. Gerda never gives up. She leads us through terrifying ordeals as well as endless fun and nonsense.
Along the way, Gerda encounters talking ravens, the evil Cobweb Spider, a prince and princess, a band of robbers and the wild robber-girl, greedy polar bears and the brave reindeer who carries Gerda across the artic. This is a wonderful, fast-paced adventure story, fitting for the whole family.
“Let me give you a fair warning,” says Gwen Crandell, director of this production. “For those of you who have heard this is the story the movie Frozen was based on (it is), there are a lot of differences…and no Olaf!
“However, the message is still the same: Love and resilience can conquer all adversity. We hope young and young-at-heart alike enjoy our rendering and any would-be splinters are melted away by our performance.”
