The Snow Queen staged a successful weekend run at Hutton’s Hamlet in Oakdale on June 23 and 24. Top photo, as Gerda – portrayed by Escalon’s Rachel Swift, right – goes on a quest to find her cursed friend Kay, she runs into a witch named Beatrix, played by Michael Medlin, who can never seem to get any ‘witching’ spells right. At side, The Snow Queen’s plans begin to play out as villager Kay’s heart starts to grow ugly. The sinister scene plays out after Kay is struck by a bewitched piece of glass. Hannah Swope played The Snow Queen with Emma Magnussen as Kay.
