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.

Lap Passes

Lap passes will be $5 each, and will only be available at the ticket office the day of the performance. They are for children under 3 only.

There are a limited number of passes allowed for these events, and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis while quantities last.


Ordway Pre-Show Play & Learn

1:00 PM | Target Atrium

Rabbits love to jump, explore, and figure out obstacles. Would you like to see trained bunnies jump and hop on command and go through an agility course in the Ordway’s lobby? Arrive early to meet some rabbits with dedicated volunteers from Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society during our “Play & Learn Lobbies.”  Discover information about caring for companion rabbits, how therapy rabbits provide comfort, and ask questions about their Educational programs.

This pre-show event is free for ticket holders of Mermaid Theatre’s “Goodnight Moon and the Runaway Bunny” performance at the Ordway.
