This family friendly musical tells the story of The Old Man who has kept his post as the sole caretaker of the moon for as long as he and his wife can remember. When his wife is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, The Old Man must decide between duty and love. Luckily for audiences everywhere, he chooses the latter - throwing the world into chaos as he sets out to find her. What follows is an imaginative sea-faring epic, encompassing apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change.
From the directors of Spring Awakening (Old Nick, 2018) and The Theory of Relativity (MTC, 2017), The Old Man and The Old Moon is delivered by an entirely local production team. The use of stunning folk music, magical puppetry and beautiful singing, combine to create a night that audiences will hold close to them for years to come.
