GRAFTON, Mass. - Young students from Shrewsbury and Central Massachusetts will star in the Apple Tree Arts production of “Snoozy Snowflake.”
The musical tells the story of Snoozy Snowflake’s reluctance to join the other snowflakes in making snow. She delays the first snowfall of the year. Her teacher, Miss Frost, learns that the real reason Snoozy doesn’t want to act like all of the other snowflakes is because she wants to be different. Miss Frost teaches her that everyone is different, and that’s OK.
Julia Casavant of Shrewsbury plays Miss Frost. Other cast members are from Grafton, Northbridge, Millbury and Worcester. The 16 young actors studied dialogue, learned musical numbers and choreography, and created snowflakes for the show.
The show is co-directed by Laurie Baker, theater arts and early childhood music teacher. and Lisa Scarlett, theater arts director.
“Snoozy Snowflake” will be performed at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at St. Philip Church, 12 West St. in Grafton. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children 5 and older and free for children 4 and younger. Tickets will be sold at the door.
