To the Moon and Back

Past Production

‘Just think of it you and me, eating all of the cheese we can eat on the moon…’

Astronauts – Planet Earth needs you! Alex and dad, Gareth haven’t been getting on too well lately. After the death of his mother, Alex has thrown himself into writing his stories; his newest one is about space, but his Dad thinks all of his stories are childish. With the help of Lena, their new babysitter, Alex and his dad go on an adventure to the moon and back and together they save the world along with your help too! Travel through a meteor shower, make a wish upon a star and visit Mars and the moon! 

Concrete Youth present a revamped touring production of their 2019 debut show – a multi-sensory, magical story exploring space, adventure and the importance of family, for young audiences with profound and multiple learning disabilities.

The 2023 UK Tour of To the Moon and Back was supported by Arts Council England, Hull City Council, Interplay Theatre, Back to Ours and Middle Child.

The 2023 UK Tour Cast Recording is available to listen now on:
