ACO Families: There's a Sea in my Bedroom

An immersive production with live music, based on the classic picture book by Margaret Wild.

“Delightful and entrancing. The music was glorious. It was so immersive.” - Audience Member

Based on the beloved 1984 children’s book written by award-winning author Margaret Wild and illustrated by Jane Tanner, There’s a Sea in My Bedroom captures the magic of a child’s fantasy world.

This immersive and theatrical performance, adapted and directed by Tim McGarry, weaves together captivating storytelling with an original score from Australian composer Paul Stanhope, performed live by an ACO string quintet. This enchanting production, perfect for young audiences, touches on themes of joy, sadness and fear, while promising laughter.
