One grand piano, three mischievous musicians, and a most peculiar dream…

Miss Ivory Tinklefinger, Queen of Sleep, is hired to draw the audience into dreamland, but tonight her piano has a mind of its own. Her lullabies come alive – and the consequences are wild!

What’s going on? Can she resist the urge to play? And what will she create with the magic her music has unleashed?

Based on much-loved songs from the bedtime book I’m still awake, still! by Elizabeth Honey and Sue Johnson, this show is strikingly original, strangely beautiful and ridiculously funny, with mayhem worthy of the Marx Brothers.

Perfect for the whole family.
