"Moonlight and Magnolias" in Rehearsal

The cast of "Moonlight and Magnolias", under the direction of Debi L. Crawford is in rehearsal, preparing for the show to open in early November.

The two-act comedy by Ron Hutchinson is set in 1939 as the great Hollywood producer, David O. Selznick, shuts down production of his epic movie, "Gone With the Wind", fires his director, and calls in the wonderboy of screenplays to rewrite his movie. Shut in his office for 5 long days and nights, it is only left to the imagination what these the three Hollywood powerhouses did to rewrite what would become one of the greatest epic films of all time.

The cast includes Wesley Saunders of Pine Prairie as producer David O. Selznick, Michael Sanchez of Eunice as screenwriter Ben Hecht, Brett Faulkner of Eunice as director Victor Fleming, and Amy Rider of Eunice as the secretary.

Dates: November 7, 11, 12, 14 at 7pm and November 8 & 15 at 2pm. Dinner theatre with steak catered by Nick's on Second St. is November 10 at 6pm. Tickets will go on sale in late October.

Stay tuned for pictures and notice of tickets on sale.
