Luna: A little girl in the moon

This festive season the Studio in Keswick’s Theatre by the Lake is hosting Luna, a magical, musical piece about friendship, the moon and being brave in the dark.

It’s made especially for children aged two to five and their families to enjoy, and is showing from December 16 to December 24.

Luna is bored up in the sky by herself with nobody to play with. Although she’s surrounded by stars, they never quite understand her – it’s certainly lonely being the only moon. One night she spots Billy hiding from shadow monsters on his bedroom walls. Luna flies down to make friends with him, and together they go on an adventure of light and dark to help Billy overcome his fear of the night-time.

The story is told by three performers (as well as Pig the beanie toy) including a live musician who accompanies the action on guitar, cello, xylophone and percussion – and there’s some singing too.

Theatre by the Lake describes the show as ‘gentle, but enthralling and often funny, with charming visuals and performances – ideal for a child’s first experience of theatre’.

The production brings together the award-winning creative teams at Theatre Hullabaloo and Theatr Iolo, both known for their quality shows for young children. Reviewers (who’ve often taken their own children to the show for that special critical eye) are full of praise: Wales Arts Review says ‘it’s the atmosphere which makes this show absorbing, fascinating theatre’ and the Northern Echo comments ‘director Sarah Argent and the creative team have created a little star’.

Luna is the latest family-friendly offering from Theatre by the Lake, following the success of recent events like Half-Term Happenings and shows for young audiences including The Elephant Bridesmaid. The theatre’s own family Christmas production of Swallows & Amazons opened at the weekend, but Luna aims to enchant even younger children through the magic of theatre.

The show is 45 minutes long.
