Woodcote hosting last panto of the season

HANS Christian Andersen’s magical tale of

HANS Christian Andersen’s magical tale of

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.

Fun and frolics abound in this production, with tickets available for six performances in total — the first of which is a matinée at 2.15pm tomorrow (Saturday). This will be followed by an evening performance at 7.30pm.

Another matinée follows on Sunday, again at 2.15pm, before the production resumes on Friday, February 5, at 7.30pm and on Saturday, February 6, at 2.15pm and 7.30pm.

Tickets for the evening performances are £8. Matinée tickets are £8 for adults and £5 for children.
