Third time round, and the Theatr Iolo and Theatre Hullabaloo collaboration, Luna, is just as beautiful as ever. Devised and directed by Sarah Argent, Luna is brought to life by a very talented cast who instantly enchant and entertain their young audience members from the first twitch of the duvet cover…
Billy is very fond of macaroni cheese. But not so much a fan of the dark, despite being determined to be brave for his sidekick, Pig. So when bedtime comes around, the pair do all they can to resist the urge to sleep, including dancing in the moonlight and flying on a rocket: anything to distract themselves from the darkness, instantly noted by a cry of ‘He should be asleep!’ from the front row! And then out of the darkness, comes the beautiful Luna, who is bored of sitting around in the sky and just wants to play. Although she can not speak, the communication and the relationship between her and Billy is enchanting to watch, as she brings a little mischief to his late night adventures and teaches him to trust the darkness.
Wonderfully designed and cleverly devised, the lighting and set design is incredibly in tune with the live music score, capturing the young audiences attention every step of the way, from a midnight snack… to the moon and back! The two actors are brilliantly cast as they bounce on the bed and fly amongst the stars, interacting instantly with their mesmerised crowd who had definitely perfected their pig impersonations by the end of the show!
A stunning and magical musical experience of friendship and bravery: Luna really is out of this world, and a true gem in children’s theatre!
