"Snoozy Snowflake" tells the story of one snowflake's reluctance to join her fellow snowflakes in making snow. Her teacher, Miss Frost learns that the real reason Snoozy doesnt want to act like all of the other snowflakes is because she wants to be different. Miss Frost teaches her that everyone is indeed different and that's okay.

The 16 young actors studied dialogue, learned musical numbers and choreography to prepare for the show. The students made beautiful snowflake decorations for the stage, too.

Cast members are from Grafton, Shrewsbury, Northbridge, Millbury and Worcester.
The actors portray snowflakes and children. Hope Brookhouse of Northbridge plays Snoozy Snowflake. Julia Casavant of Shrewsbury plays Miss Frost.

The show is co-directed by Laurie Baker, theatre arts and early childhood music teacher and Lisa Scarlett, theatre arts director. Together they have worked on many productions including "The Little Mermaid Jr.," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Show Choir."

Several parents and students are assisting with the production. Parent volunteers are developing the marquee, helping with promotion and organizing refreshments. Lauren Baker has assisted the director with many facets of the show.

Apple Tree Arts continues its Penny campaign established to assist with fundraising efforts to restore the second and third floors of the Grafton Town House into a performance arts center. Children are encouraged to bring their pennies and loose change to the show. Participants will be entered into a drawing for an iTunes gift card.

Founded in 1989, Apple Tree Arts is a nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization that has grown to serve over 1,000 children and adults annually with early childhood music classes, group keyboard lessons, private music and voice instruction, ensembles, theatre arts programs and concerts.
