Theatre lovers are invited to join young Gerda on an extraordinary quest to the frozen north to save her best friend Kaj from the wicked, icy clutches of the Snow Queen.
Tobacco Factory’s production will be full of rich acoustic music and will be brought to life by a multi-talented cast. This unforgettable folk tale is full of heart, beauty and a lot of laughter as Gerda’s adventures takes her through a mystical land of snow and magic – even featuring a flight through the sky with a bicycling reindeer!
Having wowed Bristol audiences with Beauty an The Beast in 2017 and Snow White in 2019 (see below), Tobacco Factory Theatres are partnering once more with award-winning company New International Encounter and Cambridge Junction to present this joyful festive production.
