           Sun and Moon Dancing
           Play by Fred Tonge
     
Article & photos by Diana O'Farrell  

Ms. Moon and Mr. Sun meet in the universe and share a romantic moment of dancing and tete-a-tete during an eclipse. Fred Tonge's lovely “Sun and Moon Dancing” was performed November 14 in the Ashland room to the delight of its audience. Marlene Teichert as Ms. Moon, or Diana in more intimate moments, was lovely in a shimmering blue gown with a large moon belt. Tom Buechele (or Sol) in a jazzy black and silver shirt and red cummerbund, was imposing and suave.

 
As Sol and Diana danced both verbally and literally with each other, Narrator Barbara Rosen added commentary in key moments. The binding force of the play was the music chosen for each moment, mostly parts of old show tunes, played masterfully by Donna Swanson with the help of Jean Beuchele. Marlene and Tom sang beautifully to each other.

 
Fred Tonge wrote Sun and Moon Dancing several years ago, and it was performed without the music once. He was inspired to write the play by a weaving he had made depicting the sun and moon together. He seemed delighted to have the music added, and commented it was not an easy task for Donna Swanson to piece it together.
