This is the story about a little boy who has a dream.

One night, Arthur has an amazing dream about a beautiful pink and green boat with a stripy mast. He can't wait to tell everyone about it but no one (not even his dog!) is interested. In fact, they don't even notice that this very same boat is growing on his head, getting larger and larger by the minute! Soon, Arthur is bouncing along the waves in his very own dream boat. Maybe now his family will listen to him!

A magical playful children's show with breathtaking puppets, so enchanting that everyone will want to sail away with Arthur in his dream boat.

The innocence, wonder, magic and joy that exuded from this puppet show was awesome and inspiring.

Reviews

★★★★
"Clever, witty, enchanting, fun and beautifully, impeccably performed, it turned out to be a surprisingly, refreshingly regressive 45 minutes that genuinely rekindled the vibrant, youthful spirit of my inner child." - 365 Bristol

"The puppets – a combination of hand-operated and full-body – are exquisite and expertly manoeuvred, Tom Gray’s delightful music is like a fusion of Belle & Sebastian and The Divine Comedy and there’s a large helping of wry humour to keep grown-ups entertained." - Bambino Goodies

"It was a glorious moment, marked by my 10 month old daughter standing on my lap, wide eyed and waving wildly at this curious collection of characters with both of her pudgy hands." - Theatre Bristol Writers
