Moon-Mouse-Space-Odyssey-Spring-2017

Marvin, a mouse, longs to be the “cool” rat and wants to adventure to the moon to show that he too can be a hero. Through dance, puppetry and 3D theatricals, this performance of Moon Mouse: A Space Odyssey demonstrates how everyone can celebrate their differences without being bullied. Performances are April 22 and 23.

 

Show attendees are encouraged to arrive an hour before the performance time to experience free creative activities.

 

With an already highly applauded schedule of performances this theater season, the performing arts scene is going to continue to heat up in Costa Mesa. Its no rumor, Hamilton the Musical, which dominated the Tony Awards in 2016, is headed to Orange County for the 2017-18 season. We can’t wait!
