Hello and thank you for booking a ticket to see The Snow Queen. Your support in this very difficult time is so hugely appreciated by every single one of us.
This production has come together through the incredible hard work of all the people involved and even though a second lockdown stopped us from rehearsing we all came together, redoubled our efforts and made the show in just over a week. I am so incredibly proud of everyone's achievements and I hope the joy we have felt in bringing this magical adventure to life comes across and that you enjoy it just as much.
Below are a load of activities that have been put together by our wonderful writer Matt Beames and our young writer Elle Rooney, short stories you can read giving you more back story to the world of The Snow Queen and two audio plays to enjoy. There is also a printable activity sheet, production trailers and bios of the cast and creative team, so please enjoy further exploring the world we have created.
At the end of what has been a challenging year for everyone, we hope that the escapism that comes from being lost in a story will bring you some comfort and joy, so pop your headphones on and let's escape together into your imagination.
