The Snow Queen is coming to Woodcote village hall this weekend.
A spokesman for Woodcote Amateur Dramatic Society promised the story would be told “in true pantomime tradition”.
Myth, legend and fantasy combine in the character of the Snow Queen, who sweeps through the streets on snowy nights, looking in at people’s windows, her breath leaving strange icy patterns on the glass. “Yes, I’ve seen them,” says Gerda — but little does she know that her best friend Kai is about to be spirited away to the evil Snow Queen’s ice palace.
And so, as the spring thaw arrives, Gerda’s quest begins — an adventurous journey from Denmark to the frozen North, passing through every season and encountering a host of colourful characters.
