Mission San Juan Capistrano is excited to partner with South Coast Repertory for a fourth summer to provide you with the opportunity to gather outdoors and experience family-friendly, world-class theatre under the stars.

Book, Music and Lyrics by Pigpen Theatre Co.
Directed by Kim Martin-Cotten
July 20-Aug. 11, 2024

An epic adventure across land, sea and sky–all in the name of love! Indie-folk music and ingenious staging transform this tall tale into a thrilling theatrical event like no other. The Old Man who keeps the moon filled with light wakes up one morning to find his wife has gone, lured away by a mysterious melody.  In his quest to find her, he encounters colorful characters, gets caught in an apocalyptic storm and is swallowed by a giant fish.  Can he find her before the moon runs out of light and the world plunges into darkness?

Recommendation: For swashbucklers and yarn-spinners ages 7 to 97.
