A fairy-tale treat for families, Hans Christian Andersen's classic children's tale of adventure, friendship and bravery. Once, a wicked goblin made an evil mirror. When you looked into it, everything good and beautiful appeared worthless and bad. Then, the mirror was broken into a million pieces. Some got into people's eyes and, for them, the world became an ugly place. Even worse, some got into people's hearts and turned them into lumps of ice. That's what happens to Kai. Now he isn't happy with his home, his grandmother or his best friend, Gerda. He flies away to live with the Snow Queen in her icy palace far away in Lapland. Heartbroken, Gerda sets off alone across the wide world to find him, helped by the little robber girl, the crow and the reindeer. Follow Gerda on her epic journey to rescue Kay from the icy grip of the Snow Queen in this exciting tale of intrigue, adventure and the healing power of friendship. With stilt-walking, circus skills, aerial acrobatics and original songs, this highly entertaining and sparkling winter production is sure to delight and enthral audiences of all ages.
