“That’s beautiful. Sparks in the air. Like glitter hanging in the sky.”


A unique and heart-warming story brought to life with stunning puppetry that will take you soaring into the sky.


Emily wakes up one bright autumn morning to find that her feet can’t touch the ground, and no one can understand why.

To everyone’s surprise Emily keeps rising higher and higher. From sleeping upside-down on her ceiling and flying above her school playground, to soaring over a starry-skied London; Emily’s adventure is just beginning. Emily discovers a world that looks completely different. She’s not scared at all - it’s fun being high up. But she’s not coming down…


Emily Rising is a brand new show written by award-winning playwright Dan Rebellato.
