Artistic Director of Theatr Clwyd, Tamara Harvey, today announces full cast for Theatr Clwyd and Paperfinch’s co-production of The Snow Queen, based on Hans Christian Anderson’s classic fairy tale. Joe Bunce directs Josh Sneesby in the titular role, and he will be joined by Matilda Reith (Ripley Pockets) and Robyn Sinclair (Gerda). Opening on 18 December, with previews from the 15th and performed as a promenade in 15 specially created spaces in the building, the production will see more than 30 members of the community come together to join the company.
