Flynn, from School Play to TV Star


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. Flynn, 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 home!


With his Kibworth dad, Steve, he sent 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 awesome.


Flynn 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.
