An award winning theatre group will let it go when they perform a much loved fairytale later this month.

Kibworth based Last Minute Theatre stage a production of the pantomime The Snow Queen.

The original tale written by Hans Christian Andersen was used by Disney as the basis of the animated smash hit Frozen.

And a spokesman for the group said they have come together to put on a spectacular show after picking up the Blue Balloon Trophy last year at the Pantomime Alliance awards.

A spokesman for the group said: “With lovable characters, a fantastic story line and, of course, a love plot, book your tickets now.”

Last Minute Theatre was established nearly 12 years ago by the founding members who wanted to create some top class entertainment at a price that is still affordable.

The group of amateurs has members aged from three to considerably older all of whom are committed to bringing the best quality entertainment to audiences at affordable prices.

It will be the group’s first show of the year with further performances to follow in the summer and autumn.
