Tutti Frutti Presents: Sweet Dreams

A one-hour show for all sleepyheads aged 3+ and their families. 

 ‘Those looking for a magical and thought-provoking early experience of the wonder and power of theatre should treat themselves to tutti frutti’- British Theatre Guide

Leave the ordinary behind and step into a place of wonder; 

Snuggle down in a place of still, silent sleepy slumber, a place just for you…

Every night bedtime comes around, but tonight Ivy cannot sleep. When she and her favourite toy rabbit, Bun Bun, find themselves alone on the moon, sleeping is not so easy. The moon can be a funny place. It has two sides and one big face. Ivy tries her best to sleep but she just can’t!   

It’s too dark!  The stars are too bright! The earth sounds are too noisy! And now the galaxy is too quiet to sleep!

Join Ivy and Bun Bun as they try to find a place to sleep that is just right. If you can’t sleep, won’t sleep or love to sleep there is something in this show for you. With sublime music, songs and beautiful design, tutti frutti invites you to their new show made of dreams. 

Tutti frutti has dreamed up this new play about the wonders and benefits of sleep with partners The Sleep Charity and Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust. This magical new show is underpinned with research about sleep behaviours in children and families and there is helpful information available after every show. Funded by the Wellcome Trust and Room to Grow.

‘Leeds-based tutti frutti has a reputation as one of the most inspired ensembles specialising in work for very young children’The Guardian
