Emily Brown and The Thing

February 16, 2019 1:30 pm. Tall Stories arrives at Centrepointe Theatres with a tale of adventure and imagination. Emily Brown and the Thing tells the story of a young girl and her old grey rabbit, Stanley who hear a Thing crying outside their window. Based on the much-loved book by Cressida Cowell and Neal Layton, this magical, musical show takes you on the journey with Emily and Stanley as they set off to the Dark and Scary Wood, the Whirling Wastes and beyond, to find the Thing's cuddly, his bedtime milk and his medicine. What do you do with a Thing that just won't sleep? Hailing from the United Kingdom, Tall Stories have brought to life beloved stories such as The Gruffalo, Room on a Broom and The Snail and the Whale on Centrepointe Theatres' main stage. Known for their unique and exciting blend of theatre, music and lots of laughs, their shows are not to be missed! Ticket holders are invited to come to the theatre an hour before the performance for free colouring and crafts.. 101 Centrepointe DriveOttawa, ON K2G 5K7.. Event Details.
