Programme Note #1: The Snow Queen

FM wrote: “The Snow Queen must surely be one of Hans Christian Andersen’s best loved stories and it has been a great pleasure to direct it as a play with so many young people in it, all from our own Youth and Junior Groups.
These Groups were formed in 1977 to provide drama activity for younger members in the cast of our very successful Christmas play Where the Rainbow Ends.

Those of you who are regular patrons will recognise some of the youngsters of that cast who have graduated to adult rôles; Simon Gray is our musical director and Antony Muzzall plays a leading rôle as The Storyteller.
I am particularly pleased to have new members in this production who have joined us as a result of a recent recruiting drive. I am sure you will agree Karen Mulholland, playing her first major part with the adult company, makes a delightful Gerda.”
