Beginning on February 26, the Revelstoke Theatre Company (RTC) put on the dazzling production, The Snow Queen. With a rich and colourful set and an expressive cast of well-developed characters, this family-friendly play was a sheer delight to behold.

Set in a fantasy land, The Snow Queen follows brave, selfless young Gerda as she travels through the seasons in search of her best friend, Cei, who was taken by the Snow Queen. Along the way she meets many other colourful characters who help her to succeed in her quest, from adorable flowers in a spring garden to tough robbers running the autumn forest.

Many students from Revelstoke Secondary School (RSS) had roles in this play, including two of the main parts.  Grade eight student Frankie Howe was mesmerizing as the protagonist, Gerda, and grade 12 student Matt Kurtenbach gave a strong performance as Cei, in this captivating adaptation of the classic fairy tale.

“It was such an amazing experience, working with actors of all ages,” said Howe. “I would highly recommend anyone getting into the arts because it’s so rewarding.”

The Snow Queen boasted a cast and crew of about 80 people, and was produced on a relatively short timeline, so everyone involved had an extremely busy few months to make it all come together. The time and commitment from all of the cast and crew members was evident when they finally took the stage to perform.

Thanks to the time and effort of approximately 80 people, the Revelstoke Theatre Company put on The Snow Queen, and captivated audiences with it’s charm and hilarity.  All members of cast and crew deserve a heart felt “well done” for all their hard work and dedication to the project.
