A very fun play. Excellent acting, and a very nice venue. We live in SF, so we mostly attend theater there, but this was worth the drive.

No weak performers. 3 of the performances were terrific and the other was good. The best was Tim Reynolds; fantastic work and he really carries the show. Well-directed... continued

You can't beat this entertainment value...the show was very engaging and the acting remarkably good for such a small venue...this is a show that will appeal to most people--it's funny and also pretty amazing considering it's based on a true story

Description

Moonlight and Magnolias

A comedy by Ron Hutchinson

Directed by Stewart Lyle

Featuring: John Hale, Keith Jefferds, Tim Reynolds, Donna Turner

It’s 1939 and producer David O. Selznick’s new film _Gone With The Wind _is in trouble. The new director and screenwriter are convinced the movie will flop. Can Selznick bring order to the chaos and rescue the monumental project? Watch art being created one crazy step at a time, as the creative team grapple with artistic compromises, commercialism, the politics of race, and even the closing line of the movie!

_Note: peanuts, peanut shells and peanut dust are present throughout the performance. _
