Like the fairytale, the story looks at how our negative or positive perceptions alter our thoughts and emotions and either support or prevent us from coming into alignment with everything we want to create and our own potential. Learn more

About the Show
Alpha’s The Snow Queen humourously and powerfully captures the magic of what is Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale of adventure and lessons about the need to stay in alignment with feeling good and seeing things as they are, not worse than they are. Whilst our version does not follow the same adventure as the fairytale, the themes and characters are used to progress the story along as well as combine the expectations from the most popular adaptation of this story by Disney in their smash hit movie, ‘Frozen’.
This story and these characters are super popular, however, we had to find the reasons for why Alpha should tell the story, to take the lessons of the fairytale and include them along with some of the broader themes introduced by Disney – and then take them further to empower a new generation in the skills for how to ‘align with your potential’, to move past fear and into courage, to become all of who you are. We also knew we wanted to tell a story about the power of love that is not related to romantic love, indeed, it is the power of the love between two sisters that ultimately leads to redemption for all.
These powerful metaphors move us at a deep level beyond what we consciously perceive. The show also has a great pace and energy, with lots of standard Alpha gags that audiences love and some new comedy that we’ve never tried before! With some familiar and some very original Alpha characters in the show, such as the much beloved Snowman Festy, Bac the Reindeer as well as other characters new and old, we know you’ll find the whole show hilarious and entertaining! Plus, in our version, we’ve included additional powerful female figures from the fairytale, including the ‘Clever Princess’ who guides Elsa and Anna and teaches them how to be powerful on their own, and of course, a villain that represents temptation and negative influence that often is quite palpable in our lives today – the actual Snow Queen.
Values Theme: ALIGNMENT & COURAGE
Elsa finds herself with powers that she can’t control, and is scared to be herself and use them. As a result, she suffers from being ‘out of alignment’ with that which you wish to create and the experiences she desires. Her sister Anna, through courage and strength, goes on an adventure that mimics her own mother’s journey years ago (from the fairytale) to save her sister and help her come into alignment with her potential. The ‘Clever Princess’ teaches Elsa the way to focus your thoughts to stay in alignment so as to not manifest everything you don’t want, and as a result, she and Anna save each other and Elsa becomes the ‘One True Queen’ after defeating the contrast experience personified by the ‘Snow Queen’.
