In this exciting, new adaptation of Hans Anderson’s classic tale, you will travel with Gerda as she overcomes temptations and obstacles in the search for her lost best friend Kai. He sees only the worst of things in life since shards of magic mirror lodged in his eyes. As a result he has grown cruel, and fallen easy prey to the Snow Queen, who has stolen him away to her snow-capped castles of the north. Visually arresting and filled with magical music and song, The Snow Queen is an epic journey which takes you from the Wicked Wizards school of Evil Looks to a faraway land of musical snow flakes, goblins, mirrors that sing, to the frozen realm of the Snow Queen with her icy heart.Producer Unity Theatre.
