The beloved story of a little bunny who doesn’t want to go to sleep is being brought to life by the Stages Theatre. The book version of Goodnight Moon is fewer than 100 words, so the stage production gives voice to each unique character the bunny addresses. From the clock to the cow jumping over the moon, the story becomes an interactive wonderland full of musical numbers and magical elements.
Nikki Swoboda, the musical’s director, says that the production is in line with all of the other Stages productions in that it appeals to the whole family. “We can all relate to that ritual of going to bed, and especially children stalling the process… it’s definitely something that everyone can enjoy together.”
