BACK by popular demand is the Derek Grant Organisation with the production of The Snow Queen.

This great panto will be at the Exmouth Pavilion on Thursday, February 21.

The title role will be played by Jane Rossington, who first appeared on TV as nurse Kate in ITV's Emergency Ward Ten, then played Monica downs in Radios 4's The Archers. However, it was as Jill Richardson in Crossroads that she entered the nation's hearts, playing the role for 24 years and becoming a national treasure.

The evergreen fairy tale of the frozen north brings a touch of magic to the theatre. The Snow Queen plans to rule the world in a new Ice Age. She captures a young orphan, Kay, and freezes him, taking him away to her Ice Palace. But she hasn't bargained for his fearless sister, Gerda, who sets out to rescue him, facing many adventures on the way.
