Quest for the Moon is a heartwarming and engaging story about the friendship between a young fox and the Moon told with the magic of shadow puppetry, music, and theatre in a sensory-rich and intimate setting.

Cautious and fearful of venturing far from his home in the woods, the fox is happy to bask in the moon’s stories about far off places that she has seen on her path across the sky. One night, the Moon goes missing so the fox must summon the courage to go in search of his friend. Along the way he discovers a newfound independence and the wonder of the world beyond his den.


The Capitol Theatre is pleased to present a special weekend of live performances created especially for early childhood presented in partnership with the acclaimed WeeFestival of Arts and Culture for Early Years.

The programme features Lost & Found, a playful and interactive music, storytelling, and puppetry performance for children 3 -6 years and Quest for the Moon, a sensory-rich shadow theatre performance about a very special friendship between a fox and the moon for children 2 yrs and up.

Both performances offer relaxed formats including “stay and play” endings and extended arts activities for children and families to play and create inspired by the shows.

WeeFestival Weekend is made possible with the generous funding of the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Canada Arts Presentation Program.
