College of the Mainland presents Moon Over Buffalo
Pratfalls, slammed doors and shenanigans abound in College of the Mainland’s production of Moon Over Buffalo. It is the summer of 1953, and George and Charlotte Hay, formerly stars on Broadway, are languishing in a rundown touring company. On the brink of splitting up after George’s fling with a young actress, they discover they have one last chance: Frank Capra is coming to see their show, and this could be their moment to be cast in The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Soon, however, the play devolves in chaos as George’s deaf mother-in-law undercuts him and their daughter’s clueless fiancé wreaks havoc. With mistaken identities, romantic entanglements and confusion over which play they are actually performing, the mayhem only intensifies.
