Welcome to the Moonlight Players Theater

Animal Farm: The Musical


Based on the classic politically satirical novel by George Orwell, this musical begins as a young boy takes the novel “Animal Farm” from his bookshelf and sits by his toy barnyard to read. While he does so, the barnyard becomes an imaginative set in which the barnyard animals seek to take over control of the yard, as they feel they will have a better life without the interference of the farmer. Their quest for this new life soon leads them to establish a totalitarian microcosm in which some animals are far more equal than others.

Tickets are $18. Please call 352-319-1116 for reservations
