Emily Brown and the Thing coming to PJ Live Arts

'Emily Brown and the Thing' has a gentle message that there's really no need to be scared of 'things' at bedtime.

IF you have a little one who makes all sorts of excuses not to go to bed at night, then this is the musical for him.

Emily Brown and the Thing promises original music, beautiful puppetry, physical storytelling and lots of comedy, making it ideal for children aged three years and older.

The musical adaptation of the much-loved book by Cressida Cowell (writer of How to Train your Dragon) and Neal Layton is presented by Tall Stories (creators of The Gruffalo and The Snail and the Whale stage shows).

The story is about Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit Stanley. One day, they hear a “thing” crying outside their window. He just can’t get to sleep. Emily Brown and Stanley set off on incredible adventures to the Dark and Scary Wood, the Whirling Wastes and beyond, to find the Thing’s cuddly, his bedtime milk and his medicine. But nothing seems to help him settle. What’s really troubling the Thing – and will anyone ever get to sleep?

This story has a gentle message that there’s really no need to be scared of “things” at bedtime. The production touches on themes of belonging, fear, bravery and adventure in an entertaining and enlightening way, accessible to the very young.

Emily Brown and the Thing is staged at PJ Live Arts @ Jaya One from Feb 20-March 12, 2017.
