Our Assistant Production Stage Manager, Sarah Mixson (you might remember her from her Peeps-homage to A Tale of Two Cities), reads every show report (submitted by the Stage Manager after each performance) and watches about as many shows as any person in at SCT. She's been collecting fun, and funny, moments noted in the show reports for us from the run of Goodnight Moon.
"At the beginning of the second singing of Hey Diddle Diddle, a member of the house said 'We’ve already done this!'"
"During the post-play discussion Matt Wolfe, who plays Bunny, asked the audience how the Hey Diddle Diddle song makes them feel, and a little girl raised her hand and answered 'It makes me feel like a superstar!'"
"After Old Lady said the line, 'You know what happens when you drink water late and night,' a kid responded with 'You pee your bed!' It was quite hilarious."
"After Cat’s line “Whose idea was it to cast that cow?” a child in the audience shouted out 'MINE!'."
"Lovely show tonight. We are pretty sure we had Clarabelle’s [the cow who jumps over the moon] biggest fan in the house. He was a little boy who became more and more excited by Clarabelle’s attempts and was so surprised when Clara actually made the jump that he had to let it sink in for a moment. He then let rip the most astonishing squeal I have ever heard. He began leaping up and down and throwing his arms in the air, it was really adorable."
Only two weekends left to share in the magic - Goodnight Moon closes June 7th.
