Theater Presents: Moon Over Buffalo

Taylor High School Theater Department is proud to present this year’s One Act Play Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig. This madcap comedy centers on George (Caleb Nunamaker) and Charlotte Hay (Tracey Lucas), fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they are performing repertory theater in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, Eileen (Viannah Gomes), they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his new movie. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter, Rosalind (Katie Henson) and her clueless fiancé, Howard (Tommy Rojas). Adding to the fun is the hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother, Ethel (Latavia Anderson), who hates every bone in George’s body. Taylor High School Theater Department is proud to present this comedy on Monday, March 4th at 7:30 PM at the Taylor Main Street Auditorium, 3101 N Main St. Tickets will be $5 for adults and $3 for students. Come join us for laughs and cheer on Taylor High School Theater Department before their District One Act Play competition.
