Tall Stories, an audience favorite from the United Kingdom, brings the magical, musical show, Emily Brown & The Thing, to St. Louis audiences. Emily Brown & The Thing is based on the much-loved book by Cressida Cowell (How to Train Your Dragon), and Neal Layton.

Emily Brown and Stanley set off on incredible adventures to help the Thing get some rest! Tall Stories has become internationally recognized for its exciting blend of storytelling theatre, original music and lots of laughs.
