Since 1989, Comet in Moominland has toured to cities throughout North America, both at festivals and major theatres. Considered to be MTYP’s signature production, Comet in Moominland was recognized for its uniquely detailed set as the Winner of the Canadian Institute of the Arts for Young Audiences Award in 1992.
Comet in Moominland represents the culmination of five years work for designer William Chesney. Chesney and MTYP’s former Artistic Director Leslee Silverman, both avid fans of the Finn Family Moomintroll since childhood, thought Tove Jansson’s stories would make wonderful theatre, and thus began discussions in 1983. A warm and enthusiastic correspondence with author Tove Jansson followed.
