The story is based on a host of lovable characters created by renowned illustrator and comic artist Winsor McCay. It is the story of Nemo a little boy who dreams BIG. It is Christmas Eve in 1905 and Nemo’s dreams are full of magic as he tries to find a way to keep a play date with his friend, The Princess of Slumberland. Before he can make it to his date he must make a stop to help Santa and perhaps make the world a better place.

About Talespinner Children’s Theatre
TCT is a Cleveland-based company that develops and produces highly imaginative, original, collaborative and interactive professional works for children that also stimulate creative growth in its artists. At any time, these pieces may involve acting, dance, music, puppetry, tumbling, drumming, and numerous other artistic disciplines as imagined by the artistic teams working with and for TCT, and are open to all creative possibility. TCT closes its second season with Adventures in Slumberland, November 30th through December 22nd. TCT's aim is to bring theatre to the community in its fullest form providing excitement, growth and joy for all who are involved in and/or touched by its work.
TCT strives to reach across socio-economic, cultural and traditional boundaries to help awaken and bring better understanding by opening eyes, ears, hearts and imaginations in the young people (and artists) of Cleveland and its surrounds.
TCT creates work that remembers that children are smaller people, not lesser people.
