Toured 2012

The monster under the bed is real! In this case his name is Sebastian. Sebastian is an attention seeking lovable sock monster and is Amy's only true friend.Amy has wished her Stepdad away and it looks like her wish has come true! She better fix things before anyone finds out!


The Locked Door is a magical story about self discovery, overcoming your fears, growing up and the power of a child's imagination. 


Join Amy and Sebastian as they travel through a strange and magical kingdom in search of Paul.   Amy battles through city streets of strange and unusual creatures, crazy shops, creepy forests and an icy tundra.  It takes all of Amy's skills, bravery and compassion to survive as she encounters scary creatures, a lonely Swamp Queen, a headless shop keeper, and the sinister character who keeps trying to trick her in to giving up her quest.


Will Amy's trusted best friend Sebastian be able to help Amy in her hour of need?  Will Amy be able to find Paul and bring him home? Will Amy ever see her bedroom again?  You can expect this modern day fairy tale to have an energetic blend of good story telling, physical theatre, humour, playful visual style, puppetry, circus, original music and supurb new writting by Louise Osborn.
