Set on Christmas Eve, BOING! is an energetic and enchanting piece of children’s dance theatre that captures the delirious excitement of waiting for Father Christmas to arrive on the most magical night of the year. Adored by both critics and children when it performed at the Lilian Baylis Studio over Christmas 2011 and 2012, BOING! has attracted rave reviews.

Directed by children’s theatre specialist Sally Cookson and choreographed by award-winning b-boys Wilkie Branson (a Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate), and Joêl Daniel, BOING! combines comedy, acrobatics and breakdance to dazzling effect. Too excited to sleep, Wilkie and Joêl are drawn into ever wilder games that turn their bed into a giant trampoline. The ensuing chaos guarantees to leave children bursting with Christmas spirit!

BOING! is presented by Travelling Light and Bristol Old Vic who both have outstanding reputations for creating theatre for young audiences and are highly regarded locally, nationally and internationally for producing innovative new work.
