The book "Goodnight Moon," is a children's classic, delighting generations over 60 years. The crowning literary achievement of author Margaret Wise Brown, with adored illustrations by Clement Hurd, is brought vibrantly to life with fanciful song, dance and puppetry. The stage production brings to life this long poem of goodnight wishes set in Bunny's great green room as he is going to bed. Upbeat and charming songs, accompanied by a live pianist, and innovative puppetry give life to the various objects in the bunny's room. Watch as the red balloon floats around the room and the cow jumps over the moon. Children and adults will delight in seeing this beloved book come to life. Children will learn about telling time, using a phone, and nursery rhymes. Goodnight Moon is a joint production of LICM and Plaza Theatrical.

Ages: 3 and up. Fee: $9 per seat with museum admission ($7 per seat for LICM members), $12 theater only.
