CCMS Performances – A Trip to the Moon

CCMS Performances presents: A Trip to the Moon, a full-length play by Tracy Wells. Directed by Allegra Williams-Stirrat. The play will be performed at 6 p.m. on Friday, December 1 and and Saturday, December 2 and at 1 p.m. on Sunday, December 3 at Robert Frost Auditorium.

Set in the transformative summer of 1969, A Trip to the Moon tells the story of people reaching for their dreams … dreams of love, dreams of equality, dreams of the stars. Told around the time of the moon landing, this vignette-style play is comprised of 16 scenes, each named after an iconic song from 1969. From a girl trying to convince her parent to let her go to Woodstock in “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” to a woman trying to get a job at NASA in “Bad Moon Rising,” to a soldier giving the new guy a reality check in “Fortunate Son,” to a group of protestors showing a girl how to fight for what’s right in “Come Together,” these scenes and more use humor and heart to teach us about who we once were and reflect on who we could be and remind us that to achieve the impossible, we must reach for the stars. 

Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois
