"She cannot receive any power from me greater than she now has, which consists in her own purity and innocence of heart. If she cannot herself obtain access to the Snow Queen, and remove the glass fragments from little Kai, we can do nothing to help her..."

The Finn woman, The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen


Once upon a time, in the town of Grimmsville, there lived two little children called Kai and Gerda, who were friends. When the shards from an evil mirror begin to rain down upon the town, Kai and Gerda's lives are shattered. Now Gerda, and her band of trusty folklore friends must travel to the Snow Queen's palace to find Kai, kill the Queen, and rescue Grimmsville from an eternal winter.


Minotaur Theatre Company reinvents one of Hans Christian Anderson's most enchanting and well-known tales; The Snow Queen, a grim and grizzly comedy to please children and adults alike.
