A magical tale of big ideas and sky-high courage…

This February half-term join us for a wonderfully warm, imaginative and moving adventure with a shy and under-confident boy called Paul, who, with the help of his friends and neighbours, finds the courage to climb into the moon.

Some pretty odd ideas are floating around Paul’s street. There’s Mabel, whose brother hides under a brown paper bag. And Clarence the poodle who thinks he can fly. But Paul has the oddest idea of all. He thinks that the moon is a hole in the sky and he’s going to climb into it.

Anything’s possible in this warm and very funny story based on the children's book by David Almond, award-winning writer of Skellig and My Dad’s A Birdman. Theatre Alibi's production brings the story to life with puppetry and original live music for ages 6-11 and their families or friends.
