The Snow Queen at Scarborough’s Stephen Joseph Theatre – the movie!!
Available from the SJT website until midnight on Sunday 31 January 2021
A brand new film of the Scarborough theatre’s sell-out Christmas show, The Snow Queen, will be available on the SJT website until midnight on Sunday 31 January 2021. It’s the first time the famous North Yorkshire theatre has ventured into filming its productions.
Tickets cost just £12, and allow access to the movie for a week from the first click of the ‘play’ button. Purchase here.
The show, which was live on stage at the SJT in December, has been adapted by Nick Lane from the original story by Hans Christian Andersen, and is a Snow Queen like you’ve never seen before – a one-woman whirlwind performed by Polly Lister.
Gerda and Kai are best friends – they share everything – sweets, jokes, games and stories… especially ones about the mysterious ‘Lady in the Sky’ who lives in a faraway palace made of ice.
And some of the stories are silly, and some are a bit spooky, but they are only stories. Aren’t they?
When Kai disappears after seeing a strange shape above the clouds, Gerda knows it’s all real. The Snow Queen has got her best mate and only she can rescue him… by travelling to a world of weirdness and wonderment known as the Other Scarborough before he freezes forever.
The team behind the last three years of smash-hit Christmas shows return with a brand-new adventure!
Will it be ridiculous? Will there be brilliant songs? Will you look at hedgehogs in the same way again? Yes, yes and possibly not. In that order.
