Goodnight Moon is a celebration of familiar nighttime rituals, while The Runaway Bunny's pretend tale of leaving home evokes reassuring responses from his loving mum. Both tales feature endearing rabbit characters, and the soothing rhythms of bunny banter and dream-like imagery never fail to infuse young readers with a reassuring sense of security. Mermaid's staged adaptation will bring a new sense of appreciation to stories that have delighted several generations.
The performance of Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny employs a variety of styles of puppets -- including rod and table-top puppets -- to tell the two stories. Amazingly, all of the puppets and scenic elements are manipulated by just three puppeteers!
