IDEAs presents... a brand new pantomime!


The Snow Queen


The Summer Queen breaks the evil mirror of her sister, the Snow Queen. She hoped this would stop the Snow Queen from using her black magic. But she’s wrong... with the broken pieces it’s now even easier for the Snow Queen to spread her evil across the world! The only one who can break the spell, is someone who is completely selfless. But where will the Summer Queen find such a person...?

In the meantime the two henchmen of the Snow Queen use the pieces of the evil mirror to turn Kay into a new slave for the Snow Queen. Gerda, Kays best friend, soon discovers he’s taken to the arctic north and she wants to save him. The Summer Queen tells her there’s only one way she can save Kay: she must prove her devotion to him in order to break the spell. And so Gerda and her friends from the village set off to The Ice Palace...

    I.D.E.A. was formed initially in 1992 as a means to allow English speaking people in the area of Dordrecht to participate in the production and performance of amateur theatricals. The major form of production was and still is the annual Christmas panto - a form which is unknown outside the UK. Over the years we have produced pantos (written by our own members) virtually every year, much to the enjoyment of the English resident population and to the delight of many Dutch people, who join in wholeheartedly.
