Moon Over Buffalo

Home Made Theater presents Ken Ludwig’s comedy Moon Over Buffalo, a story about the chaotic lives and goings-on of people in a traveling theater production. The production promises to explain why theater people have the mantra “the show must go on.” Actors turn up missing or pregnant, and other mishaps ensue as a powerful Hollywood producer stops by for a surprise visit.

Moon Over Buffalo will be performed at the Spa Little Theater at Saratoga State Park beginning tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 10). A preview performance will be held tonight (Thursday, Oct. 9) at 8:15 PM for $10. The show will run for three consecutive weekends (Oct. 10-11, 17-19 and 24-26). Friday and Saturday performances are at 8:15 PM; on Saturday, Oct. 24, there also will be a 4 PM show. Sunday matinee performances will be at 2 PM. A dinner package is available at Lillian’s Restaurant. All tickets are $21 and $19. For more information or to order tickets, call the Home Made Theater Box Office at 587-4427.
