Today through Sunday – Ark. Arts Center Children’s Theatre Studio Series – APOLLO TO THE MOON

AAC CT SS Apollo

Tonight at 7pm, Saturday at 2pm and 7pm and Sunday at 2pm, audiences will have a chance to relive the glory days of space exploration with the play Apollo to the Moon.

Originally produced by Smithsonian’s Discovery Theatre, Apollo To the Moon is a history-packed celebration of our American Space Program, wherein young astronaut-hopeful Scott Gibson learns that it takes more than just a rocket and a space helmet: It takes math, science, physical stamina, mental perseverance—and, oh yes, a dream.

This play introduces today’s young audiences to the glory days of the space program. Apollo to the Moon is an exciting look at the breathtaking risks and unforgettable heroism of the American Space program. Told through the lens of one young man’s dream to become an astronaut, this thrilling story takes you on the journey that gripped the nation.

AAC CT SS GingerJeremy Matthey stars in this one-man show written by Mary Hall Surface, directed by John Isner with music by Lori Isner.
