Upstairs in the Sky is a story of adventure, friendship and loss. Two delivery people arrive with a box addressed to the audience - a Make-It-Yourself Story Kit! At first they can't agree on what story to tell.
With the audiences help they take us on an imaginary journey up a tall, tall tower to a beautiful magical cloudscape. Their story of Princess Veronica and her search for grandfather King Jim is a gentle, heart-warming reassurance of family love.
Enriching creativity through open-ended play: The show is performed with open ended play materials - boxes, cloths, tubes and household objects which the children can play with after the show. When children play with things that have no prescribed play value they stretch their imaginations and share their ideas with other children in order for the 'playing' to continue.
