The Story Pirates, known for creating award-winning and hilarious sketch comedy based on children’s story ideas, launch SLEEP SQUAD, a family-friendly, interactive virtual theater experience which turns the viewer’s home into a rocket ship launching kids into dreamland. Featuring a Tony Award-winning team and brand new kid-driven storytelling, and exclusive new music from the Story Pirates, this world premiere on-demand production creates a new kind of bedtime ritual for kids ages 4 to 12.
SLEEP SQUAD stars Tony Award Nominee Lilli Cooper (SpongeBob SquarePants, Tootsie) as the Dream Queen, who invites kids to the Sleep Squad in an introductory video, and then guides adventurers through three different enchanting audio experiences, adapted in classic Story Pirates fashion from stories written by real kids, including a visit to a desert island (“Stuck Island”), a dinosaur’s birthday party (“Spinosaurus’ Birthday”), and an intergalactic nightclub (“30 Moons”).
A ticket to the on-screen performances comes with a “Dreamtime Travel Kit” which will be delivered to each family’s home address. The items within this “secret” kit – including a dream journal, “sleep goggle” mask and star machine – help bring the performance to life, inviting kids to take ownership of the imagination-powered storytelling. SLEEP SQUAD concludes with soothing music that will help lull adventurers to sleep.
