HADLEIGH Amateur Dramatic Society's (HADS) youngsters are to perform one of Hans Christian Andersen's most popular stories, The Snow Queen, it has today been announced.

The show will be performed in Hadleigh Town Hall from November 20 to 22.

A society spokesman said: “Adapted for the stage by Niki Seager and Hannah Warner, this is the story of Gerda and Kay who live happily with their Grandmother until one day the Snow Queen appears and puts an evil spell on Kay, making him cruel and aggressive.

“Later the Snow Queen returns for Kay and, along with her nasty ice sprites, kidnaps him and takes him to her palace. “Gerda is so upset she takes it upon herself to find him and as she prepares for the long and dangerous journey to rescue Kay she is given a magic rose to help her along her way and to break the Snow Queen's spell. On her journey, Gerda meets witches, royalty, robbers and many others.
