The Old Man has kept his post as the sole caretaker of the moon for as long as he can remember. When his wife, The Old Woman is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, The Old Man must decide between duty (and routine) and love (and adventure). Luckily for audiences everywhere, he chooses the latter, and what follows is an imaginative sea-faring epic, encompassing apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change. Join the cast as they perform this original book, music, and lyrics by PigPen Theatre Company.
One of the PigPen founding members is VHHS Alumni, Matt Nuernberger,VHHS Class of 2007. Matt was active in all areas of performing arts while he attended Vernon Hills High School, holding lead roles in numerous musical and theatrical productions including The Music Man, Amadeus, Noises Off, and Story Theatre.
