Enchanting powers

DUNDEE Rep Ensemble present a magical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairytale, The Snow Queen, from December 4 to January 5.

Gerda and Kai are best friends, they do everything together but when a splinter of glass from the Snow Queen’s evil mirror enters Kai’s eye and heart, his soul seems lost forever. Kai becomes intoxicated by her enchanting powers and follows her to her icy palace.

Poor Gerda is lost without him and, fearing that he has disappeared forever, sets out on an epic journey to save her best friend. Who will she meet along the way?

Join Gerda as she travels through snow filled forests, ice cold rivers and freezing winds to save her best friend Kai from the grips of the evil Snow Queen.
