The Snow queen
The Dukes, Lancaster
Grab your mittens and dust off your snow boots because Three Left Feet are bringing an un-brrr-lieveable retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen to The Dukes Playhouse this Christmas. This hour-and-a-half-long show offers an unusual winter delight for family audiences and the young of heart. Original writing and music are brought to life through the magic of shadow puppetry and the talented voices of North West actors. So, join headstrong young Gerda on her journey to save her best friend Kai from the cold-hearted Snow Queen. Come along as she encounters a whole host of wacky, wonderful, (and just plain weird) characters in this story of how love, compassion, and forgiveness may get you through even the harshest of winters.

The Snow queen
NEW DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED soon
Friends Garden, Williamson Park, Lancaster
It’s 17th Century Lancaster and the air is rife with suspicion. There are witches among us, so you’d better watch your backs. The powerful witch Titania and disgruntled Warlock Oberon are in the midst of a tremendous rift. Their quarrel encompasses the entire forest and beyond, meddling with all those who dare enter.
When the rebellious Hermia refuses to marry her father’s choice of husband, Demetrius, she puts herself in the line of fire. Deciding to secretly elope with her love Lysander, Hermia reveals her plan to her best friend Helena, who promptly discloses the plan to wannabe lover Demetrius. Unaware of the supernatural rumblings, all four of them set off into the forest that night. Set over the course of one night, witches and warlocks’ cross paths with the four lovers and a group of travelling crooks, resulting in a large case of magic, mistaken identity and miscellaneous shenaniganry.
Keep your eyes peeled for our schools' showings, our late-night spooky showings and our noise welcome matinees.
