FAMILY CLASSIC TO BE PERFORMED BY MILE SQUARE THEATRE IN NEW FACILITY
Book, music, and lyrics by Chad Henry Adapted from GOODNIGHT MOON by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd
Mile Square Theatre is proud to open its brand-new facility at the Artisan in Hoboken with a young audience production of GOODNIGHT MOON, Chad Henry’s lively musical adaptation of the well-known children’s book by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd.
WHEN: April 9-24: Saturdays @ 2pm and 5pm Sundays @ 11am and 2pm Saturday, April 9 @ 2pm SOLD OUT Sunday, April 24 @ 5pm Special Needs Inclusive Adjusted Performance
Join Mile Square Theatre for a special event to benefit MST, Elysian Charter School, Hoboken Charter School, and the Hola Dual Language Charter School. Bring your family to see the fabulous Kevin O'Keefe perform his hilarious CIRCUS IN A SUITCASE.
From the suitcase of the multi-talented Kevin O’Keefe, an entire circus emerges: tent, band, lights, and a collection of comedic circus characters he inhabits. Included are a boisterous ringmaster, officious usher Mervin Merkle, a glamorous “magician to the stars,” and even an entire family of juggling acrobats. However, the most important performers emerge from the audience. Each performance becomes a dialogue between the characters and the audience–a light-hearted collaboration.
Half your ticket price will go to the school of your choice. The remainder will go to MST's Education Scholarship Fund.
