Book, Music, & Lyrics by Chad Henry
Additional Musical Arrangements by Mark Rabe
Adapted from the Margaret Wise Brown Book
Margaret Wise Brown’s classic story Goodnight Moon has been loved and passed down through the generations for more than 60 years. The bunny in the blue and white striped PJs wants to delay going to bed for as long as possible, so he says goodnight to every object in his room – and beyond. In this new musical adaptation by Chad Henry, the objects and characters jump off the pages, and the bunny’s bedroom comes to life. Suddenly, the cat and the fiddle, red balloon, clocks and socks, kittens and mittens, and the cow jumping over the moon are just a few of the many that spring into action. Bedtime has never been so entertaining!
Rebecca Cort (Ensemble) Professional SSR debut! This is Rebecca's first Theater for Young Audiences show and she can't think of a better way to begin her post-grad career! Recent credits: The Shape of Things (Student Theatre Productions), This is Modern Art (WWU Hip Hop Theatre Weekend), Nunsense/A Little Night Music (Western Summer Theatre), Commedia Intensive (WWU), How I Learned to Drive (WWU Mainstage).

She also sings with Kirkland Choral Society, loves to travel, occasionally runs, and says “y’all” as much as she can! Special dedication to The Squolf, cast, and crew for their remarkable talent. Love to her husband JW and puppy Augie!
