The Old Rep announces its Christmas show for 2019!

The Old Rep are excited to announce that their Christmas show for 2019 will be The Snow Queen. The Hans Christian Andersen classic will run from Monday 18 November – Monday 30 December. This will be the fifth Christmas production produced alongside Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA).

This adaptation of the magical adventure follows inseparable friends Kai and Gerda.  When the heartless Snow Queen steals Kai to help rebuild her broken treasure, can Gerda rescue him in time before she plunges the world into an eternal winter? With the help of an unlikely band of companions, Gerda travels to the Kingdom of Ice to confront the Snow Queen and rescue her friend.

From the creative team behind last year’s Pinocchio, comes a seasonal adventure for the entire family. With an epic original score, spellbinding storytelling, and more than a pinch of Christmas magic, this thrilling re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen's classic fable promises to be a fairy-tale you won’t want to miss this Christmas.

The Snow Queen will be packed with songs, dance and plenty of family fun for audience. Our returning Creative Team includes Director, Alec Fellows-Bennett, Musical Director and Composer Steve Allan Jones, Choreographer Steve Elias and writer Toby Hulse
