Suitable for children five years and older, the 55-minute play takes the audience on an incredible journey with a little girl who has big courage – Gerda.

She embarks on an adventure to find her missing friend Kay, while her courage and determination are tested along the way. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as you wonder if she will find Kay and save him from the Snow Queen.
