About The Old Man and The Old Moon

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.

Here's what you need to know: 

- The show is 90 minutes with a 15 minute intermission  

- The show takes place on the lawn in front of the mansion (not in the auditorium). You will be choosing your own place to watch the show on the lawn (think "Concerts in the Park"). After you park in the parking lot, walk down to the front of the mansion (facing Euclid) to check-in at our Box Office table. 

- Audience members are invited/encouraged to bring their own seating: Blankets, low back lawn chairs, and regular lawn chairs.  The closest lawn sections to the stage area will be designated for blankets and low backed chairs (not to exceed 6 inches from the ground to the seat and are not higher than 32 inches total from the ground to the top of the chair). The farthest section will be for regular lawn chairs of any height. 

- Audience members are invited to bring their own food and drink, as is the policy for all events at The Muck! ECT will be providing a cash bar if you would like to purchase drinks before the show or during intermission.
