Jointly performed by tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal, The Snow Child tells the tale of family, love and the power of dreams.

Suitable for children aged three years and above, the play adapted by Olivier nominated playwright Emma Reeves, is set in winter and as the first snow falls, a couple watch children perform a play and yearn of a child for themselves.

They build a small figure from snow and ice and wish very hard until a magical snow child appears before them. And she proves to be a child like no other, embracing life to the full and talking to the animals in the woods. But it is not easy for the couple to bring the child up and as winter turns to spring and summer, will the child and her family find “happily ever after?’’

The play has been inspired by Arthur Ransom’s adaptation of “The Little Daughter of the Snow’’ and the set is lovely and wintery with some atmospheric music and beautiful acting.
