Seeing a press advert seeking local children
from around the County to perform with CBeebies
stars in their annual Christmas show, The
Snow Queen, being held this year at Curve,
Flynn McCue jumped at the chance.
who attends Houghton on the Hill Primary
School, doesn’t attend any extra curricular
stage or theatre classes but loves
performing in school productions and at
With his Kibworth dad, Steve, he
CBeebies a video of himself performing a
song from the musical Joseph and The Amazing
Technicolor Dreamcoat in a school
production. They loved it and although they
received over 250 videos from hopeful kids
he was invited to audition, which he says
was even more delighted when he received the
email saying he was in! This led to
rehearsals in October with the whole cast,
including CBeebies favourites such as Justin
Fletcher (Mr Tumble) and
Dr Ranj (Get Well Soon),
before the live shows in early November.
Flynn said, “Rehearsals were great. To
perform three shows on the main stage at
Curve to nearly 3,000 people was amazing.
Meeting the cast and people I have seen on
TV since I was a baby and making good
friends with the other children was great. I
was so sad when we finished”.
The Snow Queen production will be broadcast
at various times on CBeebies from
mid-December, so don’t miss it.
