The Snow Queen (C Theatre)

By | Published on Friday 15 August 2014

‘The Snow Queen’ has made many an appearance in theatre programmes over the years, and the recent release of ‘Frozen’ can only have made it a more popular choice. The classic Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale follows Gerda and her quest to release her friend Kai from the wicked Snow Queen. In this low tech production, the real star of the show was the dance, the Snow Queen manipulating Kai’s body as the pair glided beautifully around the stage. For me, this version of the story was too basic; the piece, although short, was too long for the amount that happened. However, the important ones in the audience loved it: the children giggled and gasped their way through the performance, and were very vocal at the end about how good it was.

C, until 19 Aug.
