It’s Panto time in Wisbech
The fairytale inspiration for one of Disney’s biggest ever movies is melting the most frozen of hearts at Wisbech’s Angles Theatre.
The venue has been transformed into an icy, magical kingdom for an enchanting RATz version of The Snow Queen, the classical Hans Christian Andersen story on which Frozen was based.
The annual pantomime runs until Thursday, December 31. Featuring memorable songs, hilarious characters and traditional pantomime fare, writer Dave Jeanes’ mischievous retelling of a timeless story will be the perfect way for families to get into the festive spirit this Christmas.
The Snow Queen story begins with best friends Kai and Gerda trying to help Gerda’s grandma. Kai is suddenly captured by the evil Snow Queen and whisked off to her Palace of Ice in a frozen land.
Heartbroken Gerda, a determined little girl, is the unlikely hero who sets out to rescue him with the help of the magical Jack Frost.
On the way they meet the riddling Crowman, the evil Black Ice, the Robber Queen – and even Father Christmas!
