Snow Queen

by Mike Kenny
Presented by tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal in association with the Bush Theatre
Sold out

Kai and Gerda had been friends for as long as they could remember. Day followed day, always the same.

Until, in a whirl of magic and deception, splinters of a magical broken mirror blow in the wind, freezing hearts and changing everything!

As Kai is pulled under the spell of the powerful snow queen of ice and coldness, we follow Gerda’s quest to save her friend and return life to normal. Can it ever be the same again?

Mike Kenny has taken Hans Christian Andersen’s most highly acclaimed story and simplified it into a tale for the young. Ivan Stott returns to tutti frutti (Underneath a Magical Moon) to create memorable music and songs accompanied by a typically beautiful tutti frutti design.

Join us on a winter journey about growing up, loyalty, friendship and the dangers of the unknown.

“Those looking for a magical and thought-provoking early experience of the wonder and power of theatre should treat themselves to tutti frutti”
British Theatre Guide
“Leeds-based tutti frutti has a reputation as one of the most inspired ensembles specialising in work for very young children”
The Guardian
