Adventure Theatre MTC to Open 2013-14 Season with GOODNIGHT MOON, 9/20-10/27
Adventure Theatre MTC (ATMTC) announces the musical Goodnight Moon will open its Professional 2013-2014 62nd Season. Based on the cherished book by Margaret Wise Brown, this popular show, which earned ATMTC its first Helen Hayes Award nomination, will run September 20- October 27, 2013. Goodnight Moon is directed by Roberta Gasbarre, (director of the 2010 Helen Hayes Outstanding Production- TYA nominee - The Red Balloon), and features Anissa Hartline (2006-2008 National Tour of Cats) as the Little Old Lady Whispering Hush in addition to ATMTC's youth performers as the Bunny and his friend Mouse. Tickets are $19 each and can be purchased online at www.adventuretheatre-mtc.org or by calling 301.634.2270.
In the Great Green Room, a Little Old Lady whispers "Hush", in vain! The humorous antics of a very nocturnal bunny, his magical room, dancing bears, and a red balloon bring to life the most iconic children's books of all time. Will bunny ever get to sleep?
Michael J. Bobbitt, Producing Artistic Director of Adventure Theatre MTC and Choreographer of Goodnight Moon, says of the production, "This is truly going to be a visually stunning production. Roberta has such attention to detail, that parents and kids alike are going to have a wonderful surprise at every moment of the show. How are we going to take a book with only 130 words total and make it into a show? You'll have to see."
Goodnight Moon is recommended for all ages. Tickets are $19 each with group and field trip rates available. Children under the age of 1 are free. The press performance will be Sunday, September 22 at 2pm. All performances will take place at Adventure Theatre MTC, 7300 MacArthur Blvd, Glen Echo, MD, 20812 in the historic Glen Echo Park.
