Hey Willy, See the Pyramids


Selig Family Black Box Theatre, Alliance Theatre, Atlanta

For children 0-5 years old and their grownups

Adapted from the book by Maira Kalman

Directed by Leora Morris
Production Design by Matt Acheson
Original Music by Ben Coleman

When Willy can’t sleep, he whispers to his sister in the dark ... “Psssst, hey Lulu, tell me some stories!”. Inspired by Maira Kalman’s whimsical book, this theatrical adventure explores the vivid place where bedtime stories meet dreaming. Our young audiences will go on an associative, magical ride, as the colors, shapes, words, and characters from Lulu’s stories become real. As we bake a cake, sail a boat across a lake, swim underwater with the bubbles and fish, and travel to the Egyptian pyramids, this parade of changing landscapes will give our audience lots to see, touch, and do, and an invitation to meet it all with curiosity and joy.

July 20 – 28 & September 24 – October 27, 2019
