First Piano on the Moon premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 to an enthusiastic audience and critical response.
This show is now a LIVE online experience you can access from your own home via the video platform Zoom! Half-man half-piano, Will combines storytelling and musical madness in this rollercoaster show about Mozart, music and the mooooon!
This is the story of a boy who daydreams of playing in front of a big live audience. When his dream comes true he should be excited, but he worries that maybe the whole world will discover the truth – he can’t really play the piano, he can only mess around and make people laugh.
Mozart’s music is mingled and mangled in this rambunctious show which features an unlikely birthday invitation, a frantic chase through Salzburg, and the appearance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself. What can Will glean from the Master?
Age guidance: 7+
