Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen"

19 - 29 November 1986




The story concerns a girl - Gerda, and a boy - Kay who live in a small village. Kay is spirited away by the powerful Snow Queen, and made captive in her palace in the frozen North. Gerda searches the wide world for him, and has many adventures. She is constantly threatened by the evil Rorrim, the Mirrormaster, and his wicked imps. Rorrim finally meets his match in a dramatic confrontation with the Snow Queen. This leaves Gerda free to fight her way through icy blizzards to her journey's end...
