Moon Over Buffalo Starts Run

Performances of Moon Over Buffalo will begin on Saturday with an 8 p.m. show. 

Moon Over Buffalo is a play about two married actors trying desperately to return to stardom in the 1950s. The famed director Frank Capra is coming to town to check out their performances at local theatres to see if they are worthy for his upcoming picture.

"Moon over Buffalo is in the tradition of Lend Me a Tenor, which some ACC Theatre-goers may remember but perhaps funnier," Drama Department Chair Dr. Jay Burton said.

Performances on October 11 and 16-18 will be at 8 p.m. There will be a 2:30 p.m. performance on October 12.

To learn more about future auditions, the upcoming productions or to purchase tickets, visit the Drama website. You can also learn more by calling 281-756-3606.
