Do you have trouble getting to sleep? Perhaps you need your cuddly? Or a glass of milk? In Cressida Cowell and Neil Layton’s "Emily Brown and the Thing," Emily has the same problem—or the Thing outside her window does anyway. London’s Tall Stories is a charming theatrical company that uses puppetry and its unique style of physical storytelling to make warmhearted and witty productions for audiences of all ages. In "Emily Brown," we are treated to a tender musical depiction of nighttime rituals and childhood imagination as Emily and her stuffed rabbit, Stanley, undertake incredible adventures while they attempt to quiet and comfort the Thing. For this special, early-evening performance, audience members are invited to don their favorite pajamas and bring a favorite cuddly along for the show!
Recommended for ages 3 and up, children are invited to don their pajamas and bring along a cuddly
