The Snow Beast


Welcome to the Seldomberg Science Fair,

Lab coats – check!

Goggles -on!

Ideas are bubbling in the air!

In the snowy town of Seldomberg test tubes bubble, experiments explode and new inventions whirr for the Science Academy’s Final Exams. But Faina’s got a problem… her project has unexpectedly burst into flames!

Desperate to pass her Final Exams, Faina sets off on a perilous expedition to find the legendary Snow Beast. With help from her owl assistant Maude, they encounter extraordinary spectacles and mountainous obstacles as they battle through the wild, wintry wilderness in search of the truth.

Can you help Faina and Maude overcome the scientific puzzles along the way? Does The Snow Beast even exist?

This show is a captivating collision of storytelling, original music and interactive science experiments which will inspire budding scientists of all ages.

The Snow Beast is a collaboration between critically acclaimed theatre company Scratchworks and award-winning writer Jack Dean. Originally developed in association with Barbican Theatre, Plymouth.
