Until Sunday, January 4, Southampton’s Nuffield Theatre is hosting a production of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale The Snow Queen, but with a musical twist.

The show features new songs composed by Dougal Irvine.

Joining him in script-writing duties is acclaimed TV comedy writer Georgia Pritchett, whose credits include The Thick of It, Veep and Miranda.

She has also worked on feature films, including Wallace and Gromit’s The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Sarah Tipple, director of the West End production and UK tour of Dirty Dancing: The Musical, directs the production.

The popular Danish tale tells the story of the Snow Queen’s attempt to kidnap a young boy named Kai in the frozen north, and his grumpy best friend Gerda’s quest to find him.

The Snow Queen is at the Nuffield until Sunday, January 4, with performance times ranging from 10.30am to 7pm.

Tickets: £10-22, for a full performance schedule visit nuffieldtheatre.co.uk
