About

Delightful, all-ages musical adventure -- high-energy, family-friendly epic that combines live, narrative folk music, puppetry, and theatrical effects for a unique, fantastical theater experience!


The Umbrella Stage Company invites adventure lovers of all ages to set sail with us on a high-energy, family-friendly epic that combines live, narrative folk music, puppetry, and theatrical effects for a unique, fantastical theater experience!

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.

Directed for The Umbrella Stage Company by the award-winning Julia Deter.

"This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded ... [the creators ask] us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling, while speaking to the childish mind in all of us." - The New York Times

Live, in-person with enhanced covid safety protocols, with reduced capacity, distanced seating; vaccination or negative covid test requirements; facemask required.
