LAND OF NOD

Casting Call:

 

Moon On A Stick create visual theatre using puppetry, live music and storytelling. Much of our work is for families and we tour the UK visiting a range of venues from theatres to arts centres, stately homes and village halls. Land of Nod explores the place we really go when we fall asleep. Created for ages 3+ and their families it using puppetry and music to explore the anxiety around bedtime. It’s a story of tiredness, over tiredness, wonder and waking up.

 

The show will be touring on sporadic dates from Oct 20th- Feb 24th (2019) with more bookings being taken. You must have a London base as our journeys start from London. We perform up to 3 shows a day which include a meet and greet session with the audience. We also host relaxed performances which are suitable for audience members with special educational needs and autism so you must be interested in this aspect of our work.

 

All the team helps with get ins and get outs so you must be willing and able to assist and you should enjoy life on the road.
