Goodnight Moon

Goodnight Moon, the last production of the season at Nashville Children's Theatre kicked off this past weekend. This classic bedtime story is brought to life in vivid color and song that your whole family will enjoy.

I saw the show with my 6 year old who laughed and danced in her seat. I wasn't sure what to expect or how a three minute bedtime story would expand to a full length play. I should have known that Nashville Children's Theatre would make every minute of the production magical and entertaining for all.

Mother rabbit spends the show trying to put the little rabbit to bed. As in real life, it takes more than just “hush”. Three glasses of water (my daughter leaned over and whispered, “he's going to pee in the bed drinking that much!”), a story, and questions about the paintings in the room are just a few of the tactics he uses to avoid going to sleep. The cast of five play what felt like 20 characters seamlessly. Despite the “pandemonium” (see the show – five days later my daughter and I are still mimicking Amanda Card), little rabbit finally goes to sleep.
