GLOC Panto - The Snow Queen


"Kay! Kay? What have you done to my brother?"


The village Snow Ball preparations go awry when

Kay's heart is pierced by a frozen shard of broken

mirror. He has been taken by the Snow Queen,

who holds the land in the grip of an icy winter.

Gerda is the only one brave enough to take the

perilous journey to save him.


Aided and abetted by a recusant Robber Girl, a

sardonic crow and a sprightly reindeer, Gerda must face dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, as she strikes out towards the Snow Queen's castle. Her Granny would have fifteen fits if she knew, but a rescue mission is the only chance.


Will the Snow Queen's troll minions be able to stop them? Will Kay ever recover from his propensity for higher Mathematics? Will Matt the Robber Chief ever find love? Does Gerda's locket hold a frozen secret? And what's with all the free spoons?


Find out in Grosvenor Light Opera Company's production of The Snow Queen. It's snow joke. Come join us on stage for the annual GLOC panto!


The cast list has just been announched - visit our news page to find out more. there's still time to join us on stage - join us at St. Gabriel's Church Hall in Pimlico from 19th September to be part of the chorus.
