The Boy, The Piano and The Beach

13 Feb 2018

A little boy is playing on the beach when, all of a sudden, he is magically transported to another world. His adventures through this enchanting land are packed full of extraordinary encounters with curious and mystical creatures. The question is: can the boy find his way back home?

This enchanting tale is told through puppetry, dance and light projections, all accompanied by stunning live music played on a grand piano. A sensory feast, the show will captivate children of six and upwards, who are welcome to stay and play after the performance to explore the dreamy world of the boy on the beach.

The Boy, The Piano and The Beach is a lovingly created show by Lewes based Slot Machine Theatre. Read our Brighton Festival Hot Seat interview.
