Photo Flash: First Look at the Cast of Highland Park Players' GOODNIGHT MOON
Highland Park Players present Goodnight Moon, a musical for young audiences, at Edgewood Middle School Auditorium, 929 Edgewood Road in Highland Park on Saturdays and Sundays, February 14, 15, 21, and 22, at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
Based on the beloved children's classic book, Goodnight Moon, this musical transforms the simple story of a young bunny preparing for sleep into a 3-D wonderland, full of catchy songs, delightful choreography, a colorful set and clever costumes. The rhyming ritual and the great green room come alive as the bunny dances and sings his way to sweet dreams, along with dancing bears with chairs, the Cat and the Fiddle, the Cow Jumping Over the Moon and even a trip through the night sky with dancing.
