A fantastical story of discovery, from school to the sky and back again…
Everyone says Joe is ‘different’, that he doesn’t fit in. So when Joe is given the chance to float away into the sky above he doesn’t hesitate to go.
What awaits him in the sky are wonderful experiences and new friends that delight and inspire him… But more importantly Joe finds out about himself, how his differences make him more special than he ever imagined. Joe learns to believe in himself and decides that just being yourself makes you the best you can be!
With stunning design from Vortex Creates and a flying rig that takes performers up to 20ft into the air, Up, Up and Away promises an adventure to capture audiences’ minds and imaginations alike.
