(Bay Area, CA – January 19, 2016) Bay Area Based FatRedCouch (FatRedCouch.com), publishers of tech-driven content and products that expand the entertainment experience by delivering inspiring educational opportunities in storylines and activities, releases MoonDucky Music Theatre app, bringing art and music together for kids to explore and create. The app is available now on iTunes, GooglePlay, and Amazon.
MoonDucky Music Theatre brings out the artist in children. Kids will take the director’s chair and bring a self-created production to life. From casting to performance, MoonDucky provides fun and unique theatrical experiences including: dressing up a variety of animal characters; set designing; selecting instruments and conducting the animal musicians; dance choreography, and then recording the animation and musical performance. MoonDucky songs are the featured tracks. The performances come together in a humorous and harmonious way, inspiring continuous play. An easy-save feature allows playback at any time.
Children express their artistic imagination while creating and recording a complete musical theater show with delightful animated animal characters! Explore features like:
Each animal character comes to life as users select costumes from a robust variety of hats, eye-ware, tops and bottoms, and a variety of accessories, or use the Mystery Box for a random surprise outfit!
STAGE AND SET DESIGN
Choose from a selection of six, pre-colored backdrops or create your own in the Art Center, which has dozens of coloring pages complete with simple-to-use tools for painting and drawing, plus character stamps and geometric shapes. Scenes are derived from the MoonDucky videos, “Mechanical Cow” and “Hamsters Want to be Free.”
REHEARSAL & SHOWTIME!
Choose a solo artist animal character, cast a quartet of hamsters, or pack the stage for a creative crescendo of characters. Dressed the same or uniquely different, MoonDucky brings the show to life with easy clicks and swipes.
With costumes and the stage designed it’s time to select a song for the show and begin rehearsing. Children choose the music, direct character placement, select the instruments, then voila! …let the show begin. Each character will magically know their part bringing life to a child’s imagination. The complete production is performed in the Showtime Theatre.
“MoonDucky puts imagination at center stage and brings out the artist from within while also building confidence and leadership skills in children,” says FatRedCouch founder Nicole Lundeen. “We specifically focused on delivering technology that encourages self-learning and supports the creative process.”
MoonDucky is available for iOS, Android, and Kindle and is supported by a music-driven website and social experience where educators and parents can share creative ideas to enhance educational moments in the home or school.
