About this event

Based on the book by Margaret Wild, illustrated by Jane Tanner
Adapted for the stage by Tim McGarry with original music by Paul Stanhope

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.

The 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.

Dubbo 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.
