Happy Birthday Moon
Apr 29 @ 11:00 am – 11:30 am

Moon_Poster_Large_AM2-200x300Bear wonders when the Moon’s birthday is and what the Moon might want as a gift. Bear soon finds out (or so he believes) that he and the Moon have very much in common as the Moon’s birthday is the same day as his and they both seem to want the very same present!
A tale of giving, sacrifice and friendship this story is inspired by Frank Asch‘s HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOON. It is a disarmingly simple fable told in an equally simple storytelling style using puppets, audience interactions and a dash of magic. The entire story is accompanied by elegant and evocative classical music selections.
