The show, written by pantomime veteran Alan Frayne, takes its inspiration from the Hans Christian Andersen story of 1844. This much-loved tale about the struggle between good and evil, featuring Kai, Gerda and the Snow Queen, is given a modern twist which incorporates all the fun of a traditional pantomime.
Easy Street Theatre Company is now into its sixth year and has expanded with a junior section and three Saturday academies. The pantomime performers (seen here enjoying the snow) come from the youth theatre group, who meet and rehearse twice a week and perform semi-professional shows at various Sheffield venues including the Crucible.
Director Sallianne Foster-Major said: “Building on the roaring success of last year’s performances of our second pantomime, Peter Pantomime, the students jumped at the chance to develop and perform another this year.
“Pantomime is a relatively new skill to them and incorporates drama, dance, singing, and comic timing – not to mention fantastic costumes and audience participation.”
The show will take place tomorrow and Saturday at 7.15pm with a 2.15pm matinee on Saturday.
