The play tells the story of Moonbeam, mysterious daughter of the Moon King. She is hidden as a tiny babe inside a magically glowing bamboo and is discovered on the night of the August moon by the childless bamboo cutter. The play presents the comedy and adventure of Moonbeam's bumbling suitors; the startling revelation of her true identity and fate; the dramatic clash between the Moon King and the Emperor; and finally, Moonbeam's bittersweet departure from her earthly loved ones.

- "We had a lot of fun producing this show! We explored kabuki theatre, had fun making costumes and all the tech and had fun with all the acting challenges! Make sure to leave enough time to do all the technical theatre that's required."
