Text Size

Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig, directed by Diana Canova, will be performed by Town Players of Newtown at The Little Theatre, weekends May 17-June 1.

In Ludwig’s 1995 comedy, George and Charlotte Hay, a husband and wife team of actors, struggle to perform Cyrano de Bergerac and Private Lives in repertory while dealing with family crises and the possibility of a Hollywood director’s visit.

The Town Players cast features Henry Wright and Gillian Holt as the Hays.

The role of Rosalind (Roz), George and Charlotte’s daughter, will now be played by Brianna Bowman.

The cast also features Dan Murphy as Howard, Roz’s fiancé; Cooper Smithers as Paul, a TV weatherman and Roz’s ex-fiancé; Laurel Lettieri as Ethel, Charlotte’s nearly-deaf mother; Tim Brandt as Richard, a lovesick lawyer who is courting Charlotte; and Calista Giroux as Eileen, an actress in George’s company who had a one-night stand with him.

Producers for the upcoming production are Stefanie Rosenberg, Nicole Kittleman, and Tyler A. Kittleman. Stage Manager is Barbara Disraeli, and Light/Sound Operator is Cecil Kneen.

Performances are planned for Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 pm, and Sundays, May 19 and 26, at 2 pm.

There is also one Thursday evening performance planned for May 30.

Tickets are $30 for evening shows, $25 for matinees, and available through newtownplayers.org.
