Wishes do come true – at least in the theater.
TADA! Youth Theater will present a new production of Michael Slade and Joel Gelpe's The Little Moon Theater, to run January 19- February 16 at TADA! Theater. The show features choreography by Joanna Greer, musical direction by Jim Colleran, and direction by Janine Nina Trevens.
Based on the book by Irene Haas, the show follows a traveling troupe of actors who grant wishes through performances. On their journey, they meet an odd assortment of characters, including a creative young girl, a boy and his pet snake, a dog who is in love with the moon, and an endearing although rather clumsy fairy godmother who is desperately trying to retire. The production also features scenic and lighting design by Steve O'Shea and costume design by Dina Perez
