Brrr! It’s cold outside. Cosy up with this fresh take on a traditional Bulgarian folk tale from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School 

Wilda is excited to celebrate Christmas with her friends and family in their small mountain village – but the wicked Winter Witch has reared her icy head and declared a forever freeze across the land! 

It is up to brave Wilda to save the day. Can she make it to Grandfather Frost’s ice palace in time? Will she defeat the witch’s pesky whirlwinds, sent to stop Wilda in her tracks? Puppetry, song and physical theatre combine in this magical, festive tale about courage and community. 

 Suitable for ages 5+

One of my favourite parts about BOVTS is that it feels ‘homegrown’. From the set to the costume, lighting, acting and sound, every single aspect of a theatre production or film is down to the students. The location of Clifton is so serene and the School being so small everyone knows each other and it feels so personal and special. Violet Morris, BA Professional Acting Student
