Directed by Charlotte Conquest, this production adds song, dance and circus skills to the legendary tale. The Snow Queen is to be performed in the new space in the Info Centre at the BMW Group Plant in Oxford, which will also be hosting the Creations winter production of King Lear. Drinks and sweet and savoury crpes are available at the venue before the show.
