Under the direction of Debi L. Crawford, the actors of the comedy “Moonlight and Magnolias” are romping around the Eunice Players’ Theatre stage as they busily prepare for the opening of the third show of the season.

The year is 1939, and famed Hollywood director, David O. Selznick, has shut down production of his epic movie, replaced his director with Victor Fleming, and called in the wonder boy of screenwriters, Ben Hecht. It is only left to the imagination what happens in that locked office for five long days and nights as the three Hollywood power houses rewrite the script for one of the most beloved films of all time, “Gone With the Wind”.

The dates for the production of “Moonlight and Magnolias” are set for Saturday, November 7 at 7:00 pm and Sunday, November 8 at 2:00 pm. Dinner theatre, which is a steak dinner and dessert, catered by Nick’s on Second St., is set for Tuesday, November 10th at 6:00 pm. The comedy continues November 11, 12, and 14 at 7:00 pm and closes Sunday, November 15th with a 2:00 pm matinee. Single tickets ($10) and Dinner theatre tickets ($25) are available for purchase at David’s Hair Salon or by calling 337-546-0163 or 337-457-2156. The theatre accepts Visa and Mastercard for purchase of tickets.

The director would like to stress to people with peanut allergies that real peanuts and peanut shells will be used during production. Also, this show contains strong language. For more information, please call Debi L. Crawford at 337-457-2156.
