Gather round for the Moon’s magical story about a tippetty-top tap dancer who he has been watching at night. Marina Skippett creeps down to the boardwalk every night to shuffle and stomp to the sounds of the sea. She can’t tap dance at home since her evil Aunty banned it! But then, one moonlit night, Marina meets a mysterious, watery boy and her life is never the same again!

Tessa Bide brings you stunning puppets, original live music and tap dancing that will make you want to stick 50ps to your shoes and join in!
