The Snow Queen – On Demand – 24th December – 2nd January

Performed on Sat 2 Jan


Kay and Gerda sit on the floor of the glittery blue ice palace, gazing at each other. Shards of ice fly out towards the edges of the image. The pink New Wolsey logo sits in the top left corner and in the bottom right are the logos for the Culture Recovery Fund and Ipswich Building Society. The title 'The Snow Queen: Rock 'n' Roll Panto' sits in swirly white letters in the centre of the image, between Kay and Gerda. A pink banner below it reads 'On Demand.' Above Kay and Gerda are the dates '24 Dec 20 - 2 Jan 21.'

Our Rock ‘n’ Roll pantomime ‘The Snow Queen’ was very popular during its week-long run, so we’ve decided to spread the Christmas cheer and offer a recorded version of the show, just in case you missed it or you’d like to watch it again.

It will be available from 2pm on Christmas Eve (24 December) until midnight on Saturday 2 January and you can watch it as many times as you like in that period, free to pause, rewind or fast forward it as you please.

Like with the livestream, you only need to book one ticket per screen and your link to the show will be in your confirmation email.
You will have the choice between five versions, each with their own separate link in your email:

• Standard
• Captioned
• Audio Described
• British Sign Language interpreted
• Relaxed Experience

All you need to do is click the link you’d like to access and fill in your name and you’re all set!

Please note that Box Office support will be available 29th, 30th, 31st December between 10:00am – 4:00pm over the festive period.

So what’s the story?
All’s well in the peaceful little town of Ballbroken; Gerda is about to be crowned the Queen of May, the blacksmith’s apprentice Simon Clinkerbin hopes to graduate and get his very own hammer, and Dame Sigrid Smorgasbord has prepared a magnificent May Day feast. What’s more, it looks like something’s blossoming between Sigrid’s young son Kay, and Gerda, the blacksmith’s daughter. To top it all Primrose, Spirit of the Spring, smashes the Snow Queen’s cursed mirror, to destroy its dark powers and banish her forever. Little does she know this will only make matters worse!
Soon Kay is spirited away in the Snow Queen’s magic sleigh and held captive in her glittering Ice Palace. It’s up to brave young Gerda and poor Dame Sigrid to trek to the Frozen North to rescue him. Can they make it before Kay is turned to ice forever? Will love come out on top? And just how will Simon earn his very first hammer?

This year Peter Rowe’s Rock ‘n’ Roll panto is reimagined, bringing a brand-new adventure and all your favourite actor-musicians right into your living room! Featuring iconic songs like Let’s Get Loud, If I Had a Hammer, I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles), I Can See Clearly Now and Love on Top, 'The Snow Queen' will be a sumptuous spread of music, mischief and mayhem for all the family.
