The story that inspired the musical Frozen…
A young girl, Gerda, embarks on a challenging journey to the far north to rescue her friend, Kai, from the clutches of the Snow Queen. Along the way, she meets a series of magical characters that variously help or hinder her quest. The CCOC presents the favourite Hans Christian Andersen fable, the story that inspired the musical Frozen, in this 60-minute musical adaptation written by Jeremy James Taylorand John Greer. Perfect for the whole family!
Approximately 60 minutes, no intermission, sung in English. Performed with piano & percussion.
