We brought a picnic, parked across the street from the theatre and had a lovely picnic in Lincoln Park's lovely rose garden.

No bad sitting, it's a compact theater and the stage is right there a few feet away

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. _
