The story is based on the traditional classic written by Hans Christian Anderson. We follow Gerda on her adventures as she sets off to rescue her best friend Kai from the icy Snow Queen. Along the way she meets many friends, but can she overcome the Snow Queen’s wicked magic and save the day?

A treat for adults and children alike, this family-friendly traditional pantomime contains fantastic original music, hilarious characters, traditional slapstick, lots of magic and audience participation.

The Village Players, based in Launton, produce one pantomime production each year, staged in February, and one or two other productions during the year, both dramatic and musical.  Over 100 people get involved in the panto, on stage, backstage, front of house, etc.

Enthusiasm and a passion for performing is the order of the day. With opportunities to help front of house, back stage, and in many other areas, this really is a village institution.  The monies raised go to charities.
