Embark on a night-time adventure with Emily Brown and the Thing when it comes to Melbourne! Explorer Emily and her bunny Stanley swing by Arts Centre Melbourne these January school holidays.
Based on the book by Cressida Cowell (writer of How To Train your Dragon) and Neal Layton, the play’s had popular seasons at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and the Sydney Opera House.
Little adventurers will love following the pair as they try to discover what Thing needs for a good night’s sleep (so they can sleep too!). The production is vividly brought to life by the team behind stage shows like The Gruffalo, with a beautiful mix of colour, superb puppetry and sweet songs.
January 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14: 10am & 12:30pm
January 4 & 6: 10am, 12pm & 3pm
