When young Kai is snatched from his home by the beautiful, cruel Snow Queen, his best friend, Gerda sets out on an epic journey to rescue him.

Along the way, she encounters a series of strangers to whom she tells her tale.

Charmed by Gerda’s story and her innocence, each of them offers to help her on her quest.

Can Gerda and her new friends reach the Snow Queen’s palace to release Kai from his icy prison and melt his frozen heart?

Following their successful tour of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories, Apollo Theatre Company present a brand-new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale just in time for Christmas.

Artistic director Tim Astley explains: “We wanted to tell the story the way Hans Christian Andersen wrote it and our adaptation is extremely faithful to his original.

“As with all of our productions, we pride ourselves on telling stories in the most imaginative, creative ways possible, capturing children’s imaginations in the way that only theatre can.

“This production is the perfect Christmas treat for children and parents alike who love the magic of storytelling and who want to experience a classic winter’s tale this Christmas.”

Apollo Theatre Company are presenting 24 performances of their endearing show, and what’s more, they are delighted to offer a signed performance of The Snow Queen at 11am on Monday, December 21.”
