“The detail of each page is astounding. Even after watching the videos a few times,
I keep finding new treasures”
A Younger Theatre

“A tiny but twinkling star of a production”
Everything Theatre

Moon River received an Academy Award for Best Original Song for its performance by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961. In Tim Hopgood’s illustrated edition, a little girl goes on a magical journey along the Moon River, which flows from her bedroom out into the big wide world.

This is an adaptation of a book in Tim Hopgood’s classic songbook series. We will also be adapting What a Wonderful World, premiering on Sunday 12 July.

Hopgood’s illustrations will be brought to life with design by Alison Alexander, and new recordings of the songs by Barb Jungr and Jenny Carr. The team will be working together to create the shows remotely, following social distancing guidelines.

The show will be available to watch until 31 December.

You can buy the book from Oxford University Press here.
