Synopsis
The audience will probably be familiar with the storyline, given the panto’s similarity to a certain children’s film with a vaguely similar title, but it’s been given the full panto treatment, so it’s packed with gags, new characters, new looks and will be totally re-imagined for the audience to enjoy!
 
The story tells the tale of two Princesses as one struggles to come to terms with the magical powers she has been given. Can they survive the snow storm? Will they ever find true love? Or will their kingdom be taken over by a wicked Prince? Join the show to find out how strong the bond between sisters can be and that they’ll stop at nothing to look after each other.
