Acclaimed children’s theatre company Wrongsemble are at Waterside Arts in Sale (November 29-December 30) with a family Christmas show that has climate change and sustainability at its heart. This musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen celebrates the idea that small changes can make a big difference. The Snow Queen herself, who is supposed to control the weather, faces her biggest challenge yet, because the seasons aren’t behaving; the world is getting warmer and it hasn’t snowed for years... Featuring an original soundtrack performed live by the cast of three actor-musicians – Molly Grace Cutler, Richard Priestley and Amy Tara – the show packs a social punch as it entertains all ages from four upwards. In keeping with the show's message of sustainability, the set and costumes are made from recycled materials and most of the production elements have been designed to be as sustainable and eco-conscious as possible. Writer and director of this adaptation, Wrongsemble artistic director Elvi Piper, said: “As a family theatre company we feel it's part of our role to explore the ideas our young audiences are curious about and which affect us all. Inspired by young activists like Greta Thunberg, we felt adapting The Snow Queen in this way was a perfect opportunity to celebrate the power of children’s voices on issues that impact their future."
