Performance Diary

Once upon a time, there were two friends, Kai and Gerda. They did everything together and were inseparable. But, one cold, cold night, Kai falls under the spell of the evil Snow Queen and is whisked away on her sleigh to the icy palace far away. Can Gerda save Kai from the Snow Queen and remove the splinter of glass in his heart? And will she survive the epic journey across the rivers, forests and snow to reach him in time? Join us this winter for an enchanting tale of friendship and discovery based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story.
