Riverside Theatres presents
An Australian Chamber Orchestra production
THERE’S A SEA IN MY BEDROOM
Based on the book by Margaret Wild, illustrated by Jane Tanner
Adapted for the stage by Tim McGarry with original music by Paul Stanhope
David is frightened of the sea. He does not like it at all, not one bit.
But one day he finds a conch shell at the beach and takes it home – and he hears
the sea trapped inside. ‘Come out, sea, come out,’ he says softly. ‘I won’t hurt you.’
Based on the beloved children’s book by award-winning author Margaret Wild, There’s a Sea in My Bedroom is an immersive and theatrical introduction to live classical music, capturing the magic of a child’s fantasy world.
Returning to the stage following a sell-out Sydney Opera House premiere season in 2019, this exquisite performance weaves together captivating storytelling with a specially commissioned score from Australian composer Paul Stanhope, performed live by a string quintet of ACO musicians.
Riverside Theatres and the Australian Chamber Orchestra are proud to present this beautifully reimagined story that promises to bring moments of joy, sadness, fear, magic, and laughter.
Suitable for ages 2 – 8 and their families
