More information from organisers:

“It’s a cold rainy night and a storm is outside,
Rain beats on the window by Lily’s bedside.
She’s scared of the dark so she shuts her eyes tight,
She hates nothing more than the dead of the night.
Tap tap tap
Comes the noise from the hallway…”

The story of In the Dead of the Night follows Lily, a young girl whose wild imagination conjures up fantastical monsters from the strange noises she hears in the middle of the night.

McBain’s book has sold internationally in Australia, Korea, Turkey, and is a core title in Waterstones Children’s Books Range here in the UK.

Alongside the family shows, the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre also offers Young Lyric Spring term classes to nurture young talent and creativity in West London. A variety of classes ranging from children’s choir, dancing, musical theatre, acting, and ballet are available for all interests and abilities.
