Adventures in Slumberland
By David Hansen
Through December 22nd

This past weekend, Talespinner Children’s Theater opened to high praise from both critics and audiences alike.

"If you’re looking to get in on some holiday magic — without the cheesiness — see this show. Then you’ll surely be among TCT’s many fans spreading the word about this fantastic theater company that you must check out." --Sarah Valek, Cool Cleveland

"...this play, written by David Hansen and based on McCay’s characters, is meant for kids. And it’s quite a treat..."--Christine Howey, Rave and Pan

"I want to fly like Little Nemo!" --Anthony D., 5 year old audience member

"This is my second year bringing the family to TCT for the holiday show. Delightful! We'll be doing this every year!" --Barbara S., grandmother and audience member

Based on the characters of renowned illustrator and comic artist Winsor McCay, Adventures in Slumberland tells the story of Nemo, a little boy with big (and vivid) dreams. On the night before Christmas in 1905, Nemo’s head is full of magic as he dreams of a way to keep a play-date with his friend, the Princess of Slumberland. On the way there, he might help Santa—and maybe make the world a better place!

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.
