County Players officially launches their 62nd Main Stage Season with the opening of the comedy MOONLIGHT AND MAGNOLIAS
The year is 1939 and David O. Selznick is making the mother of all movies, Gone with the Wind. The cast is in place and cameras are rolling. There’s just one problem— Selznick doesn’t have a script yet. So he locks himself, director Victor Fleming and script doctor Ben Hecht in a room with little more than peanuts, bananas, and a typewriter, and they proceed to reenact the saga of Scarlett and Rhett. Only this is Scarlett and Rhett like you’ve never seen before! This rip-roaring farce is a hilarious homage to the men behind an American movie classic, about which the NY Daily News said: “Frankly, my dear, this is one funny play.”
The cast features the local talents of Molly Feibel, Jim Granger, Robert McCarthy, and Rick Meyer. Director Michael J. Frohnhoefer says: “Inspired by true events, its a wildly funny and winning story that illuminates the behind-the-scenes business of movie-making — and the larger-than-life egos — during the Golden Age of Hollywood.”
Performances will be Friday & Saturday July 12, 13, 19, 20, 26 & 27, 2019 at 8pm with a matinee on Sunday, July 21 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for seniors/children under 12.
