Stages Theatre Company will be presenting its production of Goodnight Moon from January 23rd – February 16th. This musical is particularly suited for preschool children. I have some ideas for extending the fun at home.
Margaret Wise Brown’s classic book of the same name is part of the Before Five in a Row preschool program. I love this program. It takes a classic book and bases a week’s worth of lessons on it. Goodnight Moon happens to be the free sample chapter, so you can download a pdf here and check it out. I think it would be fun to spend a week immersing ourselves in this book and then finish with a trip to Stages to see the musical.
If you don’t happen to own a copy of this book (but of course you do), you can watch a video of it below.
Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.stagestheatre.org for performance dates and times or by calling the Box Office at (952) 979-1111, option 4, Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. Tickets are $16 for adults; $14 for seniors, ages +60; $12 for children, ages 5 to 17.
