Oh no! The piano has lost its music! But a little girl wants to help the piano find it again. Together they set off on a magical adventure …
They fly up out of the house and around the world — meeting dancing dinos, monks on scooters and a swooshy octopus! They play games and hunt down clues, and explore everything from Beethoven to boogie-woogie, but will they find music? Can you help?

‘I Piano makes children of us all, the same expression of awe across every child from 2 to 92 years old. Watching the wonder across the faces on the structure’s risers around you, mirroring your own, is as part of the performance as anything else. Ultimately, we all find the music together and learn that loving your neighbour makes for a harmonious world. An inspiring and playful piece, this golden hour at Pianodrome is the perfect opportunity to make musical memories together as a family.’

‘Through charming and mesmerising shadow puppetry, together with exceptionally talented musical accompaniments, any audience big or small will be won over by this engaging and unexpected story telling. The deceptively simple cast of two skilfully draw us into lands inhabited by flamboyant characters who help in the search for the missing music, which children in the audience shape with their suggestions. A musical carrot and an ink squirting octopus are part of the eclectic cast. You will be swept away by their charm and ingenuity backed by familiar classical favourites. Subtle and appealing, this calming and gentle show succeeded in winning the children's attention. It will appeal to children from 4 - 94. Full of musicality and vitality this is a little gem; and is very highly recommended. Grab it now, ends Sunday!'

‘The spirit of the piano has lost his music, so little girl Zizi undertakes to help him get it back. Adventure ensues, their journeys represented through light puppetry and clever projection. We learn about the nature of music with the aid of various suggestions solicited from the younger members of the audience. It is a charming journey full of fabulous musicianship.’

‘It was very magical and it felt like a very special experience […] I Piano really inspired me to keep on playing piano myself, even when it gets quite tough. And it made me realise that music is everywhere and can be in anything or everything.’

‘A must-see for every parent and child who loves music, loves the sound of piano played beautifully, or loves the feelings and magic you get from music … 5 stars!’
– Claire Daly, EdFringe audience review
‘My seven-year-old loved this show. Engaging tale, perfect for pre-schoolers and younger primary school kids – and the piano-playing was a real treat.’
– Bec McQuillan, EdFringe audience review
‘We are two Mums and we took our 4 kids aged 6-10 and they were all entranced and totally involved in the story – laughing out loud, shouting out answers, imitating actions and singing along … The kids left with an enhanced appreciation of the world of music. Highly recommend.’
– Meghan and Molly, EdFringe audience review
‘From a musical educator's perspective, this is a beautiful show … The story is appealing with lovely moments of audience participation and for the children to help tell the story and create the music … The shadow puppetry element was simply stunning. Breathtaking, detailed and magical.’
