 Moon Over Buffalo

by Ken Ludwig

Directed by Ben Tuberville

In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950’s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with 5 actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.

  1. Please send me ticket information on Inlaws, Outlaws, and Others… Thanks!!

    • Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children, students, military personnel, and senior adults 55 and older. We accept cash and checks only. Payment is accepted at the door the day of the performance. Reservations can be made by sending an e-mail to stating your name, the day and date of the performance you wish to attend, and the number of seats requested. You will receive a confirmation e-mail. Alternatively, you may call the unmanned box office by dialing 601-825-1293 leaving your name, the day and date of the performance you wish to attend, and the number of seats requested. You will only receive a call back if we cannot accommodate your request.

  2. Are small children ages 3 and below allowed and if so is there a charge?

    • Yes, children ages 3 and below are allowed, but we would ask that if a child becomes disruptive, regardless of age, the child be taken out so as to not distract the actors on stage. We are a small theatre. Tickets for children are $10.

  3. Do you all go to different schools, or do you all just stay at the studio?

    • We perform at our theatre in Brandon. Most of our plays range from 2 to 2.5 hours including intermission. Our children plays are slightly less long.

  4. Are there any summer camps for children that could get kids started in acting? Thanks!

    • We do offer a camp in the summer for children. If you like, I can pass your email to our youth ensemble leaders, and ask one of them to contact you.
