February 17-18: Will asks Father Christmas for a space ship, but he gets a piano instead. As he tries to work out how he might use it to reach the moon, Will is drawn into a fantastic pianistic adventure that sees him finding Bach in a cave, meeting a bad-tempered Beethoven and jamming with Fats’ Waller. Using music, humor and visuals to tell the fascinating story of the piano and some of the great musicians who have transformed what it can do, Will discovers that through music you can go anywhere you want. $20+. Saturday and Sunday, 1 p.m. Segerstrom Center for the Arts – Samueli Theater.
