“We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” He’s the Sandman, givin’ dreams out all around the world. But when his brother the Boogeyman sends bedbugs to destroy the Dream Machine, all the sweet dreams are in danger of running out! The Sandman must get help from one imaginative child to journey through the dreamscape on a Quest for the Dream Machine, before it’s too late and all the good dreams go bad… forever. This workshop production, performed by kids and for kids, is the culmination of 5 weeks of rehearsals focused on collaboration and the creative process.
