Week of 1/18

lyndsayaudra: This pic is too good🔥Thanks @nocaptionnoproblem 💗💗💗 #moonrock


A group of people wake from a collective dream and are inspired to travel to the moon. Guided by the once legendary Captain Rocket, the crew journeys through space - unaware of the evil that lurks among them.

Moonrock: The Musical is far from an ordinary show! It is a unique vision that displays the beauty of community, collaboration and interdependence. Moonrock: The Musical was conceived as a joke that one of the writers took seriously. That joke evolved into a professional production including a complete score with a cast and crew of several dozen talented people. Many of Ames' finest musicians, actors, singers, dancers, choreographers, directors, designers, engineers, writers, carpenters and artists have collaborated their passion and talent to bring this vision to life.

Moonrock: The Musical is a celebration of ordinary people coming together to create an extraordinary experience.

Written and produced by Ames artists Lyndsay Nissen and Sascha Antropov, Moonrock: The Musical will be performed one night only on January 20th to welcome the lunar eclipse!
