12 year-old Jimmy Jibbett would rather be a successful cartoonist than be in 7th grade. His father disapproves. His mother is busy. His uncle tries to understand but is too wrapped up trying to write a love song for his next flop musical. Where can Jimmy turn for inspiration and hope? Maybe The Man in the Ceiling can lead him to his true destiny… If only Jimmy would look up!

A collaboration between Jules Feiffer, the Pulitzer-Prize-winning cartoonist and celebrated author, and Tony-nominated composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa, The Man in the Ceiling is an uplifting tale about following your creative passion against all odds.

MTFestUK is a celebration of new musical theatre that sets out to promote quality artists, with a view to showcase and elevate projects to full production.
