Out of Line Concepts presents The Old Man and The Old Moon

East Dallas Arts

Out of Line Concepts presents The Old Man and The Old Moon. Directed by 17 year-old Tilda McSpadden with technical and band direction by 17 year-old Hayden Elliott, The Old Man and The Old Moon features a local cast from across the DFW area, ages 15 - 20.  A heartwarming epic tale inspired by Celtic folklore with book, music, and lyrics by Pigpen Theatre Company,The Old Man and The Old Moon tells the story of The Old Man who must refill the moon's light as it slowly leaks out each night. This production will include a live band, shadow puppetry, and upbeat dance choreography. The Old Man and The Old Moon opens on Thursday, August 11th and runs through Sunday, August 14th.

Partially narrated by the mysterious sailor and passionate storyteller, Matheson (Hayden Elliott), The Old Man (Adam Koch and Davis Chen) must refill the moon’s light as it slowly leaks out each night. When his wife (Arabella LaFond and Diana Wolfe) sets off on an unexpected journey, he abandons his duties and travels across land and sea in search of her.  He joins a haphazard crew of sailors who help him along the way.  The crew consists of Mabelu (Elora McLeod and Bee Falcone) a sailor with a good sense of humor and the best of intentions, Callahan (Ayden Lacey and Pyro Divoky) an ardent sailor who never loses a fight, Lewellyn (Tilda Grace) the youngest and somewhat naive spirited sailor, and Cookie (Phoenix Clasby) an unhinged cook who may or may not be afraid of fire.  Along his journey he is also helped by the witty and unconventional aeronautical engineers, Solomon (Audrey Webb) and Bartley (Romir Bose).  

"I'm thrilled to present The Old Man and The Old Moon, Out of Line Concepts' third production at East Dallas Arts.  Out of Line Concepts focuses on developing characters and ideas in collaboration with the entire cast rather than the director dictating the entire show. I'm excited to work with such a talented cast and have The Old Man and The Old Moon also be guided by Hayden Elliott, a Booker T Washington student, accomplished actor and musician who will be lending his expertise in band and technical direction," said director Tilda McSpadden.

Director: Tilda McSpadden - An actor, dancer, and circus artist with stage and film experience, Tilda has 9 years of training in dance, circus arts, and musical theatre. 
Band and technical direction: Hayden Elliott - A junior at Booker T. Washington HSPVA, Hayden has been performing in theater for 10+ years and has done sound design for multiple productions at Booker T. Washington and East Dallas Arts. He was also the technical director for Out of Line Concepts last production, Lord of the Flies, and was the sound designer as well as Lord Montague and Paris in OLC's debut production, Romeo + Juliet Shakespeare in Motion.
