Turn on the Light

By Peter Wilson and Kenny King

Meet Kenny, he is the caregiver for Tim. It’s bed time, but Tim is convinced there is a monster under his bed. Kenny tells him there are no such things as monsters under the bed. Tim isn’t sure, and wants to have a look. In an attempt to get Tim into bed, Kenny lends a hand, only to find the cat hiding under the bed.

“There is no monster only a cat, now turn the light off and go to sleep,” says Kenny.

“Leave the light on and tell me a story.”

The story finished – the lights go out. “No! Turn the light on,” says Tim. “I am afraid of the dark! ”

And so begins a lights on, lights off, lights on, lights off …

Tim finally falls asleep.

From out of the shadows comes Frog, Spider, Cat and Mouse. They are creatures of the night and not afraid of the dark at all. Whether Tim is dreaming or not, we don’t know. All we know is that he understands from meeting them that there is nothing to be afraid of in the dark.

Full of original music, songs and actions, the puppet characters from Turn on the Light weave a story that helps Tim overcome his fear of the dark. Turn on the Light is a wonderful introduction to theatre for young audiences.
