CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR SHERMAN THEATRE’S MAIN HOUSE CHRISTMAS SHOW THE SNOW QUEEN An exceptional cast of actor musicians has been assembled for Sherman Theatre’s world premiere production of Conor Mitchell’s brand new adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale The Snow Queen (29 Nov – 31 Dec).
A favourite through the generations, this enchanting and sparkling tale is brought to life with a spectacular set and costumes, superb storytelling, and a spellbinding original score to create a magical theatrical experience for everyone aged 7+.
Our fantastic ensemble cast brings to life the popular characters from the well-loved children’s stories. Stephanie McConville (Little Shop of Horrors, Sell A Door Theatre Company) will play the title role of The Snow Queen, Anni Dafydd (The Ugly Duckling / Yr Hwyaden Fach Hyll, Sherman Theatre & Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru) has been cast as Gerda and Ed Parry (Industry, HBO) will play Kai. The cast is completed by Rachel Nottingham (Between Us, The Mermaid), Lakesha Cammock (The Tempest, Orange Tree Theatre), Jo Servi (The Color Purple, Curve Theatre & Birmingham Hippodrome), Morgan Llewellyn Jones (The Accident, Channel 4), and Grace O’Brien (35 Diwrnod, Boom Cymru). The Snow Queen is directed by Tessa Walker (101 Dalmatians, Birmingham Rep).
Tessa Walker said ‘The Snow Queen is a magical, moving and entertaining adventure bought to life by a hugely talented cast of actors, musicians and puppeteers. A newly commissioned adaptation with a brand new epic score, this is a story of friendship, bravery and of
light following the darkest of times.’
The Snow Queen is the story of Gerda who sets off an epic adventure to find her friend Kai. It’s a journey which will ultimately lead her to the Snow Queen’s palace. On her way she will meet extraordinary characters and visit magical places.
Sherman Theatre’s Main House Christmas show has become one of Cardiff’s essential seasonal treats. A timeless tale with love and friendship at its heart means The Snow Queen is set to carry on the tradition of the Sherman being the perfect outing for families this Christmas.
