Many Moons
Many Moons
Adapted by Charlotte Chorpenning. From the short story by James Thurber.

Cast: 5m., 5w. Princess Lenore falls ill of a surfeit of raspberry tarts and cries for the moon. The king tells her she can have it today—tomorrow at the latest—and summons his wise men. First comes the Lord High Chamberlain, who wears thick glasses that make him look twice as wise as he really is. Then comes the Royal Wizard, who wears a high-peaked cap with silver stars on it. Finally, the Royal Mathematician, who can walk in squares, appears. But none of them can help the king get the moon. In fact, they can't even agree on how big it is or how far away. In despair, the king rings for the Court Jester. The way in which he obtains the moon and the lovely philosophy that goes with it make this one of the finest plays available to children. Three simple int. sets. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
