The theatre was full last night for the 2011 junior Christmas production of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen. With a cast of over 60 from Upper Three to Upper Four, it was an exciting opportunity for even the very youngest Roedean girl to get on stage.
The Snow Queen is the story of Gerda, a little girl who searches for her friend Kai when he is bewitched and imprisoned by the Snow Queen in her ice palace. Gerda’s innocence charms all good people and animals she meets on the way. They help her to escape the Enchantress, lead her to the royal court and on to Lapland, where, in a final confrontation with the Snow Queen’s Ice Creatures, good conquers evil and the children are reunited.
There were some outstanding performances – both from established Roedean actors and also from some of the new girls – and fabulous set and costumes, so well done everyone!
