AUDITIONS – Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo

The Bluegrass Players are holding auditions for Ken Ludwig’s hilarious comedy, Moon Over Buffalo on Oct. 25 at 6:00pm and Oct. 28 at 5:00pm.  Actors need to simply show up to audition. Everyone is welcome to audition.  The Bluegrass Players are a community theater group serving the Masidon County area.  Auditions will be held at the Spotlight Theatre in the Richmond Mall (830 Eastern By Pass).  Rehearsals will be held in Berea at the Spotlight Playhouse (Currently under construction).  This play is slated to Grand Open the new state-of-the-art facility in Berea.  

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.

“Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo tops the mayhem and pitch-perfect farce of his other hit, Lend Me a Tenor.” – Orange County Register

“Moon Over Buffalo packs more comic genius onto the stage than anything in recent memory!” – USA Today
