Emily Loves To Bounce

"joyous”  “funny” 

Emily Loves to Bounce by Patch Theatre 

A whimsical world where amazing ideas are expressed in extraordinary ways!

Inspired by three of the most loved books of Stephen Michael King, Emily Loves to Bounce creates a whimsical world full of balls and boxes where amazing ideas are expressed in extraordinary ways.

Follow carefree Henry and practical Amy as they turn the world upside down and right way round, and learn that working together in spite of their differences brings out the best in everyone.

Based on the books Henry and Amy, Emily Loves to Bounce and Patricia written and illustrated by Stephen Michael King.

A masterstroke of ingenuity – a beautiful blend of sound, mime and illusion. It is intriguing, mystical, funny, irresistible and thoroughly absorbing’

Emily Loves to Bounce
is a fabulous non-narrative performance exploring two entirely different personality types – amazingly expressed through the metaphor of balls and boxes. Our sell out 2.5 week season was filled with joyous responses. Children gasped with delight as string musicians were revealed from underneath large white boxes. Everything about this production is first rate – the live music, singing and wondrous lighting. Patch Theatre, through years of detailed research and practice, know how to engage and entertain 4-8 year olds and this production is amongst the company’s best. PRODUCER, SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE
