MoorArts is a non-profit organization of parents, educators, and township residents dedicated to preserving Moorestown's long-standing commitment to the arts. All MoorArts sponsored events raise funds for the MoorArts Scholarship and Grant Program. Through this program, MoorArts has administered thousands of dollars in grants and awards to support arts-related projects in the public schools and in scholarships to Moorestown High School seniors pursuing advanced study in the arts. In addition, MoorArts partners with school district and community organizations on projects that expand arts awareness and accessibility.

 

Summer Musical Theater

somfeatureThis summer, MoorArts will proudly present The Sound of Music. This final collaboration between Rodgers & Hammerstein was destined to become the world's most beloved musical. When a postulate proves too high-spirited for the religious life, she is dispatched to serve as governess for the seven children of a widowed naval Captain. Her growing rapport with the youngsters, coupled with her generosity of spirit, gradually captures the heart of the stern Captain, and they marry. Upon returning from their honeymoon they discover that Austria has been invaded by the Nazis, who demand the Captain's immediate service in their navy. The family's narrow escape over the mountains to Switzerland on the eve of World War II provides one of the most thrilling and inspirational finales ever presented in the theatre. The motion picture version remains the most popular movie musical of all time.
