The Digger & David 2018-2019 Season is here!!!
A Gift From The Moon
Created for the 2019 summer library theme, A Universe of Stories.
A Puppet show about Space, with a touch of Magic.
Since before people figured out how to read and write, they have looked up at the Moon and wondered.
And probably everyone you have ever met has a story about the Moon.
And a question or two.
How big is the Moon?
How far away is the Moon?
How old is the Moon…
…And what does it want for its birthday?
A story of friendship and forgiveness
all wrapped inside the bigger story
of the Moon and Space itself.
Inspired by Frank Asch’s Happy Birthday, Moon.
