Make plans to enter a fantastical universe as The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts presents the URLAND production of BEDTIME STORIES from Thursday, March 24 through Saturday, March 26, 2022, in The Wallis’ Lovelace Studio Theater.
Bedtime Stories celebrates the art of the voice to bring to life an enchanting cast of characters created by actor Thomas Dudkiewicz, who leads audiences into a strange and brilliantly dark world. Conceived by the Dutch collective URLAND, this pitch-perfect narrated performance takes its inspiration from radio plays. Using just Dudkiewicz’s voice and well-timed sound effects, Bedtime Stories introduces Lilly, a precocious young girl, and her father, Max, and doting grandfather, George, both master storytellers. Every night before bed, Lilly enters a fantastical universe created just for her, where she encounters a host of strange and menacing creatures that will have audiences laughing, squirming, and dreaming along, keeping folks on edge from scene to scene, as Bedtime Stories catapults towards its unexpected ending. Recommended for ages 13+; contains profanity and gunfire sound effects.
Bedtime Stories, featuring concept and performance by Thomas Dudkiewicz, is directed by Ludwig Bindervoet, with set and light design by Marijn de Jong, and sound design by Jimi Zoet and Tomas Loos.
Other upcoming performances at The Wallis in March include Hershey Felder Presents Live from Florence The Verdi Fiasco (livestreamed beginning March 27). The World Premiere production of The Excavation of Mary Anning, originally slated to open in February, has moved to The Wallis’ 2022/2023 Season.
