SUMMARY OF PRODUCTION:  The eternal moon has been stolen from the night sky by two clever, greedy magicians.  A woodland prince leaves his home to return the moon to its rightful place in the heavens before the false red moon rises.  Along the way, he meets a princess of a different leaf, her best friend, and a kingdom soaked in carnival celebration.  The prince is running out of time and he must find the child who fell from the stars before it is too late.  For if the red moon rises, the world will freeze over into a land without change.  This wonderful new play for kids of all ages is not to be missed!

This production features a cast of 42 youth, ages 8-18, from around the Valley.

EAST VALLEY CHILDREN'S THEATRE is more than just a theatre.  It is a place where children can grow and develop into confident young adults.  At EVCT, youth gain self-esteem and develop creativity.  Its mission is to offer youth age 5-18 opportunities to experience the process and product of live theatrical performances, by children for children and their families.
