Mermaid Theatre’s “Goodnight Moon and the Runaway Bunny”



Family Series, Ordway Music Theater

Returning to the Ordway by popular demand, Mermaid Theatre brings to life two beloved children’s stories through their unique style of puppetry and black light. Adapted from Margaret Wise Brown’s 60-year-old classic, Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals, while The Runaway Bunny’s pretend tale of leaving home evokes reassuring responses from his loving mom. Both stage adaptations feature endearing animal puppets and stunning scenic effects based on Clement Hurd’s illustrations, and evocative musical accompaniment.
