Be transported by the magic of family theatre when The Boy Who Wanted to Fly appears at The Lights on 23 March at 11am
Billy Baxter is feeling ill, it’s worse than measles and mumps. His head’s so hot you could cook an egg. The hospital stay could be months!
Billy is poorly, and perhaps just a tiny bit scared. He’s stuck in a hospital room with drab white walls, nasty tasting medicine and lots of busy grown-ups with not enough patience for this little patient. It’s miserable.
But all that’s about to change…
When a cool hospital porter comes dancing down the corridors, pushing a trolley of books, he swings by, and leaves an old tattered old tome on Billy’s bed. Little does Billy know that the book is his ticket to a whole world of adventure! Pulled into the pages, he’ll be transported far from his bed into strange new worlds and make the journey of a lifetime.
Join Billy, and family performance specialists Rhubarb Theatre, on their latest quest, as they discover the healing power of stories and try to prove that laughter is the best medicine!
