The Old Man And The Old Moon

Department of Theatre
Babcock Theatre

There once was an Old Man whose job it was to fill the moon with light. When his wife leaves home to chase a memory, the Old Man must follow her across the sea and farther still. But the moon grows darker each night he’s away—and what will happen when the light runs out? THE OLD MAN AND THE OLD MOON is a rollicking tale of music, mystery, romance, and adventure on the high seas, brought to shimmering life on the Babcock stage.
