I always like to get a photo of the boys by the poster for the musical or play.
The show started right on time. It's always good to be a little early, so we can pick our seats. Isaak wanted to sit in the balcony this time.
About Goodnight Moon:
It's 7 o'clock and time to go to sleep in The Great Green Room, but restless Bunny can't get to sleep. An Old Lady tries to help Bunny get to sleep, but has trouble doing so. His room comes to life with Mouse that sleeps under his bed, and other characters that jump out of a book and into his room. The cat with a fiddle, a red balloon, the telephone, clocks, dancing bears, socks, kittens, mittens, and a cow jumping over a moon are a few things Bunny encounters. Bedtime sure was entertaining!
September 2nd through the 18th. It's 60 minutes long without an intermission. Make sure if you have young ones with you they go to the bathroom before the show.
September 18 2 PM and 5 PM.

What We Thought:
I never knew bedtime could be so entertaining. The characters sang, jumped, and danced around.
I liked the message that one can do whatever they set their minds too. The cow didn't think he/she could jump over the moon. The other characters convinced the cow that it could in fact jump over the shadow of the moon, which is jumping over the moon.
The voices always amaze me! I loved the Mouse/Dog/Baby Bear voice and Tooth Fairy/Cat/Papa Bear voice!
It's so wonderful that this is a classic story came to life on stage!
