The Old Man and the Old Moon presented by Backlight Theatre Company is playing at Vernon Hills High School on Thursday April 11, Friday April 12 and Saturday April 13 in the Studio Theatre. The all-new musical tells the epic tale of an old man who must abandon his duties of filling up the moon with liquid light to cross the seas in search of his missing wife.
The Old Man has kept his post as the sole caretaker of the moon for as long as he (or his wife, the Old Woman) can remember. When she is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, the Old Man must decide between duty (and routine) and love (and adventure). Luckily for audiences everywhere, he chooses the latter, and what follows is an imaginative sea-faring epic, encompassing apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change.
Tickets are $4 for students $5 for Adults and may be purchased online at www.d128.org/vhhs/performing-arts/
