Goodnight Moon at Adventure Theatre (photos)

Goodnight Moon runs Sept. 20 through Oct. 27 at Adventure Theatre in Glen Echo Park. This children’s musical is based on the book by Margaret Wise Brown. Goodnight Moon is directed by Roberta Gasbarre, and features Anissa Hartline as the Little Old Lady Whispering Hush in addition to Adventure Theatre MTC’s youth performers as the Bunny and his friend Mouse. Goodnight Moon tells the story of a Little Old Lady trying to get a bunny to go to sleep at bedtime. The humorous antics of a very nocturnal bunny, his magical room, dancing bears, and a red balloon bring to life this endearing children’s book.
