Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak


England is cautiously moving out of national lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic, but London theatres remain closed to audiences.


The government has not announced firm dates for theatres to open in England, though a suggested date for indoor performances to restart has been given as 17 May 2021, with capacity restrictions.


Larger theatres may be back with full capacity audiences from 21 June.


London theatres are beginning to announce new show dates and we are updating our listings.


However, we advise checking theatre websites to confirm which shows will be playing in the future.

Show details

Synopsis


Adapting Mozart for outer space requires a specially equipped pianist.


William is the best piano player in the school, and only a dreamer gets to play the first piano on the moon.


But what happens when the real world brings things back down to earth?


In this engaging, playful and virtuousic performance, acclaimed pianist Will Pickvance tells the story of one boy's flight of fantasy all the way to the moon and back.


Chosen to represent the school at Mozart's birthday celebrations in Salzburg, William's ambition to perform for a big audience has suddenly come to life.


He should be excited … but doubt creeps in, and he questions his ability to play at all.


The audience is waiting. The celebration concert approaches.


But William may as well have been asked to play the piano on the moon.


This one-man-and-his-piano show features an unlikely birthday invitation, hot pursuits through the beautiful city of Salzburg, a magic cake, and Mozart himself!


From the acclaimed creator of Anatomy of the Piano, this is a summer treat for all the family not to be missed.
