Sydney Festival: Snow on Mars, by Greg Tingle - 6th January 2010

Folks, the Sydney Festival has started (well at least for journalists, photographers and media types).

An inquisitive and ambitious twelve year-old Waylon wants to be the first man on Mars and he’s shooting for the stars. But with his family constantly moving around he’s falling further behind in his schoolwork, and becoming a NASA astronaut like his hero Andy Thomas seems...well - as likely as finding snow on Mars.

Getting by with a little help from his family and friends Waylon discovers that although dreams can be difficult to reach there can be tons of fun and excitement in trying to achieve them. Oh, there is snow on Mars!, at least in this production.

Snow on Wars was conceived and designed by Kim Carpenter and written by Richard Tulloch. Snow on Mars is an inspiring adventure that blasts off with aerial performers, actors, music and songs, making it perfect for audiences of all ages.

The show goes for approximately 15 minutes and parking and public transports is nearby, with the venue just being off to the side of City Rd and Cleavland Streets, Sydney.
