Who keeps the moon shining bright? In this whimsical brand-new American fable, performed spellbindingly by a live indie-folk band, audiences of all ages will be in awe of The Old Man and the Old Moon. Charged with the otherworldly task of making the moon glow nightly, The Old Man embarks on an unexpected epic adventure of land, sea, and sky. In search of his missing wife, this magical swirling tale of love unfolds before your eyes as our hero endures apocalyptic storms, monsters of the deep, and the fiercest obstacle of all: change.

The Old Man and the Old Moon is a blend of resonant storytelling, spirited indie-folk music and inventive puppetry, creating a theatrical experience that will win over generations of theatregoers with its wit, style, and depth of emotion. Created by the endlessly imaginative PigPen Theatre Co., who were declared “a phenomenon” by the Boston Herald, and performed to sold-out houses across the nation, KCRep is thrilled to bring this uplifting and joyful production to Kansas City to close our 2021-22 Season.

Why you Should See The Old Man and the Old Moon
