The Snow Queen Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s story by Lynn Brittney

The approximate running time of this play is 1 hour.

One of our most dramatic plays, with the potential to be visually stunning (lots of glittery Snow Spirits and, of course, The Queen herself). There is also a magical garden scene with talking flowers and, later, there is a reindeer who guides Gerda on her quest. The music is also wonderful.


A minimum of 20 speaking parts – could be more if extra Snow Spirits are used. Probably another six non-speaking flowers could be added.

Gerda and her brother, Kay, live with their grandmother. Kay is very good at doing puzzles. The Snow Queen hears of Kay’s talents and she entices him away to her palace in the north where she makes him assemble all the pieces of a magic mirror that was smashed into hundreds of pieces. Gerda goes on a long journey to rescue her brother, encountering a witch, a magic garden, a band of robbers and a brave reindeer along the way.

As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on scenery, prop and costume-making.

In partnership with Your Accompanist, we are able to offer a music package for this play which includes downloadable MP3 piano accompaniments, sheet music (for piano and vocalists) and an instruction sheet. See below.
