Adapting Mozart for outer space requires a specially equipped pianist. William is the best piano player in the school, and only a dreamer gets to play the first piano on the moon. But what happens when the real world brings things back down to earth?  

In this engaging, playful and virtuosic performance, acclaimed pianist Will Pickvance tells the story of one boy’s flight of fantasy all the way to the moon and back.  

Chosen to represent the school at Mozart’s birthday celebrations in Salzburg, William’s ambition to perform for a big audience has suddenly come to life. He should be excited… but doubt creeps in, and he questions his ability to play at all.  

The audience is waiting. The celebration concert approaches. But William may as well have been asked to play the piano on the moon. This one-man-and-his-piano show features an unlikely birthday invitation, hot pursuits through the beautiful city of Salzburg, a magic cake, and Mozart himself!   

From the acclaimed creator of Anatomy of the Piano, this is a summer treat for all the family not to be missed.

Written and performed by Will Pickvance

The production you are buying a ticket for is being sold as a socially distanced performance with a reduced capacity in line with the current government guidelines. If the government decide that indoor performances can move to full capacity, we will follow their advice and increase our auditorium capacity. The production you have booked tickets for might therefore move from socially distanced seating to full capacity seating. If this happens you will be notified of the change in your booking as soon as possible. If you are uncomfortable attending a non-socially distanced performance you will be eligible for a full refund.
