Stanley always has trouble falling asleep – even counting sheep doesn’t help! When he receives an invitation to visit the Kingdom of Pillowland, he sets off on an exciting adventure with his friends Finn, Quinn and you!

“…in this charming new production from New York City Children’s Theater, slumber entails an actual journey, which little audience members can join… the show won’t put anyone to sleep, but it does make bedtime powerfully attractive.” –New York Times

“One of our top fall family picks for 2018… While parents might not find those sleepless nights quite as charming, kiddos will likely relate and be thrilled to join the adventure.” –Mommy Poppins

“This show is perfect for the entire family, including the first time theater goer as we even brought our 3-month-old and did not feel out of place. My 5 & 3-year-olds are veteran theatre goers, but they especially loved this novel experience of an interactive performance. Kids and adults were all laughing hysterically and embracing the fun.” –FiDi Families
