“The students haven’t stopped talking about the day they saw Big Nate the Musical at their school.  The kids have been singing the songs and laughing about meatloaf and cheese doodles ever since. How lucky we were to have Electric Moon’s talented crew sing, dance and rock out at our school. We can’t wait to have them back to enjoy another show!  -Claire Keogan, St. Anne Elementary School, Burlington
