The Snow Queen pays a royal visit to Blackpool

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale, the Snow Queen is set to bring a theatrical wintery sparkle to Blackpool audiences.

Running at approx. 60 minutes, The Snow Queen sees flowers come to life, puppetry princesses and shares the true meaning of friendship. The new production builds on a sold out summer show; Wonderland, which received top ratings from audiences.

The Electric Sunshine Project has been making new theatre in Blackpool for five years and each production gets brighter, bolder and a little more daring as they continue to try out new performance techniques.

Melanie Whitehead, Artistic Director of The Old Electric, said:

“We’ve tried to stay faithful to the original story but it is absolutely bonkers! We didn’t realise quite how mad it was until we started rehearsals in September but it’s been great fun to just go with that and see what ideas we can come up with.

We can’t wait to welcome audiences – both old and new, young and old – to come and share this magical winter wonderland of a story – we think there’s something for everyone in it and for a fiver, we hope everyone will get on board!”

The theatre space of the Old Electric has been a glorious gift for the company to have fun with – it’s like the building itself is another character in the show. The space, (previously Club Sanuk) has amphitheatre-style seating giving views around the auditorium.


The Snow Queen is at The Old Electric from February 4 to 6 with performances starting at 6pm.

Tickets are priced at £5 and can be booked online or bought at the venue.
