Legendary movie producer David O. Selznick is unhappy. The filming of “Gone with the Wind” is going down the drain and a new script and director must be found in five days! Locking himself in a room with screenwriter Ben Hecht, director Victor Fleming, and an unlimited supply of peanuts and bananas, the three most talented men in Hollywood set out to create the perfect screenplay for the greatest movie ever made. You’ll go nuts for this fun, farcical, behind-the-scenes look at the birth of one of the most beloved films of all time. “Frankly, my dear, this is one funny play.”
A wacky love letter to the creative process, this play will be particularly great fun for those students familiar with the famous literary work and film “Gone With the Wind”.
ALLERGEN WARNING: The set of Moonlight and Magnolias will be strewn with peanuts and peanut shells. Patrons with severe allergies to peanuts should take precautions.
Moonlight & Magnolias is recommended for children in 8th Grade and above.
The show is approximately 1 hr 45 min, including one 15 minute intermission.
This event has ended
