'Possibly the finest new children's play of the last decade, now increasingly popular as a Christmas show everywhere... The Snow Queen, with her cruel plan to freeze the world forever through her control of the boy Kay, becomes more than a symbol of emotional coldness and evil. She is a perverter of nature itself; and little Gerda, in her brave journey to the Ice Palace at the top of the world, can therefore draw on the help of all the forces of nature, from the sunspirit Bhima to the birds and the animals of the forest, the lovely reindeer that carries her to Spitzbergen, and even the polar bears guarding the Snow Queen's palace'Guardian
