One evening, Emily Brown and her old gray rabbit Stanley 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? Find out in this magical, musical show for everyone aged 3 and up, based on the much-loved book by Cressida Cowell (writer of How to Train your Dragon) and Neal Layton.

Produced by the company that brought last year's smash hit The Gruffalo to Playhouse Square.

The 10:00am performance on February 28, 2019 will have a sign language interpreter. Guests who need the assistance of the interpreter should request seats on the right side of the auditorium.

Running Time: 60 minutes
Recommended Grade Level: Pre-K - 5
