Moon Over Buffalo by Ken Ludwig (Feb 8th – 23rd 2019) George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. Now, they’re playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five 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. 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 performing, caused by Charlotte’s deaf, old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.
Character Breakdown / Project Needs
George Hay - (Male, 50s) very dramatic, a slapstick type, over-the-top actor Must be able to do strong physical comedy, including pratfalls, running, stage combat (fencing), etc.
Charlotte Hay - (Female, 50s) She helps to run the acting troupe and plays all the leads even those for which she is a bit too old. Must be able to do an upper-class British accent.
Ethel - (Female, 70s) Charlotte's mother. Grumpy, trouble-maker, hard of hearing, leading to comic misunderstandings. Should have huge stage presence and strong comedic skills.
Rosalind “Roz” Hay - (Female, 20-30 years old) George and Charlotte's daughter, used to be an actress and a member of their acting troupe, but she decided that she wanted a real career, so she left - determined never to act again - or be like her parents. Must be able to do an upper-class British accent.
Eileen - (early 20s) is an aspiring actress, eager to please. She has a crush on George and has been having a fling with him.
Howard - (late 20s-early 30s) – a weatherman and Rosalind's fiancé. He comes across as a wimp, a little annoying, nervous, and very excitable. Must be able to do strong physical comedy.
Paul - (late 20s-early 30s) is a member of the acting troupe, who used to be with Rosalind and still loves her and wants her back; but he is an actor first and foremost, so he wouldn't leave the troupe to be with her. Must be able to do strong physical comedy
Richard - (50s) He is George and Charlotte's attorney, but he is in love with Charlotte - always trying to get her to leave George. He is wealthy and used to getting what he wants, and he is both amused and perplexed by the Hay family.
