The Snow by Finegan Kruckemeyer. Directed by Carole Patullo.

When an epic snowfall imprisons the residents of the tiny village of Kishka, young Theodore Sutton proposes the villagers build a catapult to fling him and six of the village’s bravest and strongest out in search of a solution. The catapult hastily assembled, Theodore and the heroes are launched over the snow and into the grandest of adventures.

A cast and crew of 29 young people aged 13-22 brought this whimsical and heartfelt story to life in July, after a five month rehearsal period. Utilising sustainable theatre practices: recycled and repurposed sets, costumes and props, this wonderful tale was visually arresting, at the same allowing the poetic text to shine.
