Staged Musical Reading - Fairies of the Moonlight - Rescheduling TBD

Rescheduling TBD
Book and Lyrics by Mercedes Cohen
Music by Aoife Ni Conchobhair O'Connor
Directed by Michael R. Cohen
Rescheduled due to COVID-19

AE is proud to present a staged musical reading of Fairies of the Moonlight, an original musical, which follows the adventures of a “rebellious” teenager, Sunny when she crosses over to the fairy realm after she has a fight with her famous Celtic punk rock singer mother.

Fairies of the Moonlight Rory and Maddie, (short for Medusa), rescue her from the Pixies, culminating in a magical duel.  Sunny’s escape or capture hangs in suspense as magic, betrayal, and sacrifice shape the events that catapult the characters into a life and death struggle. It’s modern fairy tale that shows the importance of friendship and loyalty.

Fairies of the Moonlight, book and lyrics by Mercedes Cohen, music by Aoife Ni Conchobhair O'Connor, music direction by Khris Sanchez, directed by Michael R. Cohen.
