The Snow Queen (online)
By Hans Christian Andersen
Adapted by Nick Lane
Let the theatre come to you with a Snow Queen like you’ve never seen before – a one-woman whirlwind of a show, available to enjoy in the comfort of your home. This brand new film will be available to rent until midnight on 31 January 2021. Tickets cost just £12, and allow access to the movie for a week.
Gerda and Kai are best friends – they share everything together – sweets, jokes, games and stories – especially ones about the mysterious ‘Lady in the Sky’ who lives in a faraway palace made of ice. And some of the stories are silly, and some are a bit spooky, but they are only stories. Aren’t they?
When Kai disappears after seeing a strange shape above the clouds, Gerda knows it’s all real. The Snow Queen has got her best mate and only she can rescue him… by travelling to a world of weirdness and wonderment known as the Other Scarborough before he freezes forever.
With the help of a grumpy reindeer, a Goth raven, a bunch of talking flowers, some unwise wisewomen (and the audience!), she might just make it – but what does the Snow Queen have in store for her once she does?
The team behind Treasure Island, Alice in Wonderland and A (Scarborough) Christmas Carol return with a brand-new adventure!
Featuring the incredible talents of SJT favourite Polly Lister (The Rise & Fall of Little Voice, Di and Viv and Rose), creating a cast of thousands to delight and amuse, this is Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale as you’ve never seen it before.
Will it be ridiculous? Will there be brilliant songs? Will you look at hedgehogs in the same way again?
Yes, yes and possibly not. In that order.
