The musical, according to press notes, is described as a "loveable children's musical that teaches lessons of honesty and individuality and that has enchanting traditional Swiss children's songs; comical scenarios; valuable moral themes, and delightful rhyming characters. Jump into the fairy tale story of Mr. Yawns who wakes with a shock to his blaring, bleeping alarm clock. It pings and it pongs all day long in his head, so loud and so stabbing it could wake up the dead! But Mr. Yawns is an amazing inventor who decides to solve his problem by inventing an alarm clock that does not ring. That's right, and alarm clock that does not ring!"
