Explore themes of friendship and sustainability with us this Christmas as we bring Morna Young’s new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic wintry tale to The Lyceum stage.

Once upon a time, in a world lang forgotten, strange creatures roamed the land...

When the beautiful and fearsome Snow Queen steals young Kei away to her frozen kingdom, she leaves behind the brave and brilliant Gerda, an Edinburgh lass who will stop at nothing to rescue her best friend.

Join us for a beautiful, festive and frosty show as we follow young Gerda on her quest to save Kei, and the world, from an eternal winter. Snow, ice palaces, and a dazzling pink unicorn await!

These performances are for school groups only. Tickets will not be available to the general public.

The running time of the show will be confirmed during November. You can then use these final timings to confirm any transportation drop off and pick up schedules.
