Play Read: Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig

MOVTime/Date:  7:00 pm November 3, 2014

Come join fellow theatre-lovers for a fun evening as we read the play Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig.  Bedford Players’ play reads are an informal, fun gathering where everyone is welcome.

This is not an audition, there is no obligation, this event is open to everyone interested in reading this script as a group in a social setting.

In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950’s. At the moment, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with 5 actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they’re actually performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.

Audition Notice: The Fork on the Left

Auditions for The Fork on the Left by Karen L. Waterfield will be Sunday, December 7th and Monday, December 8th, at 7pm. at Bedford Players’ Theatre, 1408 Bedford Highway (upper parking lot of All Saints Church) in a group setting where individuals take turns reading portions of the play together. All are welcome. For more information contact Karen at 902-462-4604 or via e-mail klwater@ns.sympatico.ca.

Synopsis: Every day at Newcombe’s Pub, nestled on the shores of the Northumberland Strait, is pretty much the same as the day before; and the regulars like it that way. Certainly it is a comfort to Matthew; until Elizabeth arrives in the neighbourhood, that is, and decides to try out the local establishment. Elizabeth has an unsettling impact on the Nova Scotia man, but then so does his ex, Sylvie. The Pub staff are no help at all, and it seems the resident gambler, Samuel, has also caught the attention of the newcomer. It’s not surprising that Matthew doesn’t know which way to turn as Elizabeth’s year-long visit unfolds.

Characters are 3m 3f, in their 30’s-60’s.

Show dates are March 12-28, 2015. Rehearsals will begin by early January.
