AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Twelve year-old Waylon wants to be the first man on Mars and he's not afraid to shoot for the stars. But with his family constantly on the move he's falling further behind in his schoolwork, and becoming a NASA astronaut like his hero Andy Thomas seems about as likely as finding snow on Mars.

With help from his family and friends Waylon discovers that although dreams are hard to reach there can be fun and excitement in trying to achieve them. And yes, there is snow on Mars.

... 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. ' (Sydney Festival 2011 website)
