Charleston Community Theatre

As we continue our GOLDEN 50th Anniversary year

The Charleston Community Theatre


Moonlight and Magnolias

Performances 21-23 and 27-29 March 2014

All performances begin at 7:30 except the Sunday matinee which begins at 2:00.  The doors to the Tarble Arts Center atrium will open 30 minutes before the curtain rises.

It’s 1939 and David Selznick has just shut down production on the biggest film of his career: Gone With the Wind.  The direction is too slow, and the script is not to his liking.  He calls in Ben Hecht, a respected Hollywood screenwriter to rework the script, but there’s a small problem; Hecht hasn’t read the book.  Not one word.

Director Victor Fleming enters the picture.  These three guys, locked in Selznick’s office attempt to churn out a winning screenplay in just five days.  They may get it done if they don’t kill each other first.

Directed by Gail Mason and produced by Donna Karbassioon, the cast includes Richard G. Jones, Jr., as David O. Selznick, Matt Mattingly as Ben Hecht, Tim Mason as Victor Fleming, and Ann Bruehler as Miss Poppenghul.

Tickets are:  $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $5 for students.
