Best friends Kai and Gerda are separated by the beautiful but fierce Snow Queen's enchanted broken mirror in Piccolo Theatre's 13th annual Panto, The Snow Queen, or When Christmas Freezes Over! Pantos are a fun mash-up of fairy tale, slapstick comedy and audience participation, where you're invited to boo the villain and cheer on the hero. This fresh take on Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale features new music, dancing and characters. With her comrades by her side, Gerda faces trolls, conniving snowflakes and other magical obstacles as the gang travels across Lapland to save the imprisoned Kai. Ultimately, shy Gerda must find the hero within herself. Learn More

The play was entertaining though a bit too long. The lighting needs to be improved in the first half. The 2nd half was odd in that a long scene was behind the sheer draperies making it difficult to see the action and feel engaged. The play definitely needs some "tightening" up.
