by Mary Hall Surface
With music by Elise Cuffy
Imagine an upside down lullaby! Rather than lulling you to sleep, this enchanting play sends you to a Dreamland of another sort. Discover the fantastical journey that awaits a child and her dog when their familiar bedtime ritual is thrown delightfully off-balance. Combining live music, movement, puppets, and visual art, Stay Awake invites young children and their grown-up friends into a theatrical world where anything is possible.

“Stay Awake captivated my two year old who reenacted the events of the show for days afterward. Mary Hall Surface invites children on an entirely original adventure whose final kinetic climax mesmerizes adults and children alike.” –Elizabeth Andrews Zitelli, parent and teacher
