Journey into the Appalachian Mountains in this award-winning musical that deftly weaves traditional tales and original music into a keepsake quilt of mountain lore and wisdom for the whole family. This production incorporates singing, mountain dances, music and giant puppets to create a highly theatrical storytelling style. The score is inspired by “Old Time” Appalachian music featuring fiddle and banjo that drives the play’s action and makes music itself a character in the play. Nominated for five Helen Hayes Awards, it was commissioned and originally produced by Theater of the First Amendment, George Mason University’s professional theatre in Fairfax, Virginia. The Washington Times described the show as “excellent entertainment for viewers of all ages, offering adventure, romance, drama and comedy.” The original cast recording was the winner of the Parent’s Guide Award for Children’s Media and the Oppenheimer Toy Portfolio Award. Sing Down the Moon has enjoyed success on professional, community, university and youth theatre stages.
