When Kai is taken by the mysterious Snow Queen, Gerda sets upon an epic quest through uncharted lands to save her dearest friend. Their joyful, bittersweet journey reminds us that life doesn’t stand still; children grow up, winter turns into spring and friendship often grows into love. This world premiere adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s coming-of-age fairy tale asks, “what does it mean to lose one’s innocence?”
