As exciting as an adventure story, far more than a fairy tale, The Snow Queen is a magical musical perfect for the whole family.
There is a legend that, once upon a time, a beautiful fairy, the Snow Queen, lived on the highest, most solitary peak of the Alps. An enduring tale of strength and good vs. evil unfolds in a charming adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen fable.
By Kirsten Brandt and Rick Lombardo Music by Haddon Kime
