THE Snow, the play chosen to perform this year by Dreamhouse Theatre Company, is suitably mysterious and entertaining for families.
Recommended for audiences aged from seven up, The Snow by Australian playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer is a tale of adventure involving seven “bravest and strongest” residents of Kishka, a village trapped inside a snowfall.
The not-for-profit Mornington Peninsula-based Dreamhouse creates performing arts opportunities for young people. The Snow’s cast is aged 13 to 22 under the direction of Carole Patullo.
“We have our biggest cast and crew to date, with 26 young people from different peninsula schools and community settings taking part,” Patullo said.
“It’s been wonderful to connect and rehearse the play, after what we’ve all experienced over the last couple of years. The ensemble has formed lasting friendships through collaborating and that sense of community is an important and precious thing.
“Telling Australian stories and showcasing our wealth of local talent is very important to Dreamhouse.
“Our budgets are small, but we pack a punch with a resourceful, repurposed, minimal approach to set and costume design, which allows the words and performers to shine.”
The Snow will be performed on Friday 9 September and Saturday 10 September at The Southern Peninsula Arts Centre, Rosebud. Booking: trybooking.com/CBPWF
