Critics and audiences agree that Talespinner Children's Theatre's Adventures in Slumberland, onstage now through Dec. 22 at the Reinberger Auditorium, 5209 Detroit Avenue, Cleveland, OH, 44102, is a holiday treat--and a huge hit!
"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!
