QLD, Australia – (News4us.com) December 06, 2011
The Young Company (TYC), theatre for children and young people, is proud to present its end of year production of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale, The Snow Queen which opened on Wednesday 30 November and runs until this Saturday 10 December 2011.
With only three shows left, The Young Company’s artistic director, Leigh Boswell says people should be quick to get their tickets.
“Our first couple of shows were very popular and with only three to go, now is the time to book your place.
Already, Thursday’s show is almost full with Saint Joseph’s vacation care program taking up 40 of the 50 seats available.
“I am overjoyed with the community’s response to this production which for me, is a great way to end the year,” she said.
The Young Company will also be having their annual holiday program, The Super Duper Summer Drama School where children 7yrs – 13yrs explore the essentials of stage performance through improvisation, role-play and characterisation activities culminating in a performance showcase.

The Snow Queen Synopsis
“The Snow Queen rules her magical kingdom with a heart of ice and a grip as cold as steel.
When shards of an enchanted mirror fly into Cei’s eye, he falls under its spell.
He becomes cold-hearted and the Snow Queen steals him away to her faraway land.
With Cei as her helper, The Snow Queen has a chilling plan; to freeze the hearts of all living things and rule supreme over a world of snow and ice.
Only little Gerdo, Cei’s childhood friend, believes he can still be rescued and sets out on a life changing journey to save Cei and defeat the Snow Queen.”
The Snow Queen features TYC’s associate artists, Michael Elliot and Laura Pegrum introduces student performers Lana Wilson and Amelia Strives from Year 7 at Freshwater State School, Joel Atkins from Year 6 at Holy Cross, Joe Gaudion from Year 7 at TAS Marlin Coast, Juliette Solowiej from Year 5 at Edge Hill State School as well as TYC intern for 2011, Phoebe Alison who is currently in Year 10 at Redlynch State College.
Stage crew for this end of year performance include Michael Edwards from Year 5 at TAS Whiterock and Keir Simpson from Year 11 at Cairns State High School.
The whole family will enjoy TYC’s production of The Snow Queen, as it will dazzle audiences with its magical soundtrack, stimulating multi-media elements and creative lighting effects.
