After 19 total cancelled performances and a loss of over $60,000, Adventure Theatre MTC has reopened and extended Goodnight Moon, recommended for all ages.

GoodnightMoon2 (1) Goodnight Moon is…energetic, upbeat, and perfect for a Fall afternoon of fun for the entire family! The children in the audience all had a fantastic time watching Bunny and his friends, and so will you! Just don’t let Bunny give them any new bedtime-stalling ideas! Re-visit a childhood favorite with Goodnight Moon. Adventure Theatre MTC really knows what they’re doing when it comes to children’s entertainment!”
