Epic Sea-Faring Musical Continues Umbrella Season

Spectacular Stagecraft, Musical Storytelling, Makes for a Rousing Adventure

Adventure lovers of all ages are invited to set sail on a high-energy, family-friendly epic that combines live, narrative folk music, puppetry and theatrical effects for a unique, fantastical theater experience as The Umbrella Stage Company continues its 2021/2022 season with the The Old Man and The Old Moon, November 12–December 5!

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.

Hailed by The New York Times as "a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded," The Old Man and The Old Moon is a fantastical tale with rollicking folk music by the innovative PigPen Theatre Co., and "asks us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling, while speaking to the childish mind in all of us."

Directed by the award-winning Julia Deter, it stars Jonathan von Mering*, Gregory Boover*, Emily Serdahl*, Jennie McGuinness, Jay McCarthy, Kayla Shimizu, Lily Steven, Griffin Ostrowski and Erica Risti, each of whom also play instruments, and features dazzling sets, lighting and stagecraft to tell an unforgettable story of love and devotion.

ABOUT THE SEASON

The Old Man and The Old Moon is presented at The Umbrella Arts Center's Mainstage Theater144, 40 Stow Street, Concord, with limited seating capacity to allow for optimal social distancing. Facemasks are mandatory, and proof of full vaccination or negative Covid test is required for attendance.

The 2021–2022 season lineup also includes an updated, relevant new presentation of the satirical The Colored Museum; an original world premiere play commission created by Hortense Gerardo; and the joyous musical comedy Head Over Heels, from the visionaries behind Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Avenue Q, fueled by music from the Go-Gos.
