“Filmed as an online production, the audience, looking down a camera, are welcomed into the Cambridge Junction as if they’ve fallen down a rabbit hole.”
★★★★ – The Stage
“Enjoy The Snow Queen for what it actually is: Fun, eccentric and entertaining – and another fine performance by New International Encounter”
“As Christmas plans are scuppered by a real Snow Queen with protein spikes, this warm-hearted production is just the online ticket to warm up the frostiest of hearts.”
