Cow Over Moon Children’s Theatre celebrates its 20th Anniversary season with its latest creation, Beauty and the Beast. Developed using the classic Cow Over Moon improvisation style, and for the first time ever, puppets, this retelling of the classic tale takes a new twist by adding an element of choose-your-own-adventure storytelling.
Beauty and the Beast will be the most imaginative production in our 20 year history. Each performance will be unique due to the fact that the story will be shaped by the creative minds of our young audience! They will influence the direction of the play, shaping an old story into a new one in real time as the actors react to their suggestions. This truly improvisational style of performance allows us to open up a discussion with the audience about the impact and consequences of decisions we make in our own lives and the lives of those around us. While Cow Over Moon has always been known for our improvisational style of performance creation and modern spin on classic fairy tales, this time we’re giving children the tools to develop increased agency over their own lives.
The Cow Over Moon experience includes critical thinking, problem solving, and conflict resolution – all imparted through imaginative play. Beauty and The Beast is most appropriate for ages 7 to 12 but has tons of action that will entertain the entire family.
