Joplin Little Theatre is pleased to announce the next production – Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig.
This production is directed by Ashley Trotnic.
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 1950s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five 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 he 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.
The cast is as follows:
George Hay – Greg Green
Charlotte Hay – Diane Martinous
Ethel – Linda Bailey
Rosalind – Hope Bethel
Howard – Jacob West
Eileen – Chelsie Bennett
Paul – Elijah Brown
Richard – Neal Ruggeberg
