Theatre Statesville is excited to bring to the stage Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo, which is presented by special arrangement by Samuel French Inc. at Twisted Oak American Bar & Grill.

This is the first production of the 2019-2020 season. Performances are scheduled for August 15-18 and August 22-25. Tickets are now on sale.

Moon Over Buffalo is the story of a couple of former Broadway stars who bring their struggling touring theatre company to Buffalo, N.Y., to perform a couple of shows. Throw in a scornful, deaf mother-in-law, a pregnant ingénue, a daughter who wants to live a non-show biz life and the possibility of a famous producer coming to see their show and hilarity is guaranteed to ensue.

This show is directed by Chris Kerley, who has been involved in community theatre for over 40 years.

“I believe in community theatre," said Kerley, a retired social worker, teacher and Navy veteran. "It has been a pleasure to work with this cast and crew.

"You are in for a treat with lots of laughter. After all, the true goal of community theatre is entertaining our community," he added.
