North Bend's Valley Center Stage Offers Up Moon Over Buffalo For Two More Weekends

Valley Center Stage is currently performing Moon Over Buffalo at its North Bend location.  They’ve even started a “Pay What You Will” Thursday evening show.  Enjoy entertaining theater without having to leave the Snoqualmie Valley.  Here’s what’s on stage for the next two weekends…

Moon Over Buffalo is a fast-moving comedy that centers on a family of actors trying to make a show come together. Set in the early 1950s in Buffalo, New York, former Broadway stars George and Charlotte Hay (Peter Cook and Denise Paulette) are reduced to playing Repertory Theater in Buffalo. Though they still dream of film stardom, they keep body and soul together with a half-deaf mother-in-law (Becky Rappin), their daughter, Roz (Lisa Bryant) and her ex-boyfriend stage manager Paul (Adam Hegg). With a lucky break, they are offered the chance to perform for Frank Capra, a famous Hollywood film director.

Things then go terribly wrong.  George disappears when his wife discovers proof of a dalliance with a young local cast member (Julia Buck).  Everyone must find him and keep the play of their lives from falling apart.

Moon Over Buffalo is great physical comedy that incorporates a sword fight and a wild, wacky plot that includes a hapless local TV weatherman (Craig Ewing) and a rival for Charlotte’s affection, the company’s lawyer and the Hay’s personal manager (Jim Snyder).

The show opened last Thursday, April 19th, and runs through May 5th.  It is directed by veteran actor/director Alan Wilkie.

Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $12.50 for students (15 and under) and seniors (62 and up) Friday and Saturday nights and Pay What You Will Thursdays.  Tickets available online at www.valleycenterstage.org
