Due to the government shutdown, Adventure Theatre Musical Theater Center had to cancel its performance of “Goodnight Moon” on Saturday.

The nonprofit theater organization is located at Glen Echo Park, National Park grounds. National Parks were ordered closed because of the government shutdown, which entered day four on Friday.

Adventure Theater—which is not federally funded—has temporarily moved its classes to its academy location at Rockville’s Wintergreen Plaza, the theater said in a news release.

“Goodnight Moon” is a comedy based on a children’s book and was scheduled to run through Oct. 27, according to the theater’s website.

“We are currently looking into added performances and new opportunities for relocating the show,” Michael J. Bobbitt, producing artistic director of Adventure Theatre and choreographer of “Goodnight Moon” said the news release.

Shows scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 6, were pending.

A determination will be made Saturday as to whether Sunday’s shows would go forward. Cancellation information will be posted at Adventure Theatre’s website, and on its Facebook and Twitter pages.
