There's a Sea in My Bedroom

A magical first experience of theatre for young ones, this show is perfect for children and adults alike.

David is frightened of the sea. He does not like it at all, not one bit. But one day he finds a conch shell at the beach and takes it home - and he hears the sea trapped inside. 'Come out, sea, come out,' he says softly. 'I won't hurt you.’

Based on the beloved children's book by award-winning author Margaret Wild, There's a Sea in My Bedroom is an immersive and theatrical introduction to live classical music, capturing the magic of a child's fantasy world.

This exquisite performance weaves together captivating storytelling with a specially commissioned score from Australian composer Paul Stanhope, performed live by a string quintet of ACO musicians. Griffith Regional Theatre and the Australian Chamber Orchestra are proud to present this beautifully reimagined story that promises to bring moments of joy, sadness, fear, magic, and laughter.

“It was quite delightful and entrancing. The soundscape and the lighting really immersed the children in an unexpected magical world. I didn’t know whether to watch the performance or the children’s faces as they responded to it!” - Audience Feedback, Sydney Opera House Performance 2019
