Children’s Theatre of Charlotte Brings Classic Book “Goodnight Moon” to Life on Stage  

Children’s Theatre of Charlotte presents “Goodnight Moon”, an adaptation of Margaret Wise Brown’s beloved bedtime classic, in the McColl Family Theatre at ImaginOn from April 16-May 9. Chad Henry’s charming musical tells the story of young Bunny, who, despite the fact that it is past his bedtime, wants to stay awake and enjoy all the wonders that his imagination has to offer.  

The production brings the book’s visual riches to life with an infusion of upbeat music, singing, dancing and theatre magic. This adaptation by Chad Henry expands on the source material by giving voice and character to the different objects in the Great Green Room, but maintains the gentle feel of the beloved book. The old lady whispering “hush”, the cow jumping over the moon and the red balloon all make appearances, along with a few surprise characters from the world of bedtime stories.  

The cast of professional actors includes Ashby Blakely, Jenny Chen, Karen Christensen, Jon Parker Douglas, Matt Keffer, Tanya McClellan and Mark Sutton. “Goodnight Moon” is directed by Ron Chisholm.
