The Hill Country Community Theatre has announced the cast for its production of "Moon Over Buffalo," a raucous, physical comedy written by Ken Ludwig. It runs February 13 through March 1 at the nonprofit Cottonwood Shores theater.

Bringing the play to the stage are Doug Hart as George Hay, Katherine Clay as Charlotte Hay, Kasey Hirning as Rosalind "Roz" Hay, Kyle Nasir Hirning as Howard, Cody Hirning as Paul, Gabriele Grasmick as Ethel, Graham Avery as Richard, and Samantha Hudson as Eileen.

“Audiences will absolutely love the energy and mayhem that this talented cast brings to the stage," director Laura Gisi said.

"Moon Over Buffalo," which opened on Broadway in 1995, centers on veteran stage actors George and Charlotte Hay, who are perilously close to the final act of their uninspired careers. Appearing at a repertory theater in Buffalo, New York, their small acting troupe is performing two stage classics in rotation: “Private Lives” and "Cyrano de Bergerac.” Amid a marital spat, the couple gets word that a famous Hollywood director is coming to town in hopes of casting them as the replacement stars for his current film. All they need is to get their act together for one perfect performance, which might be too much to ask of this troupe in disarray.

“‘Moon Over Buffalo’ is a good, old-fashioned, physical comedy,” Gisi said. “There are slamming doors, mistaken identities, misunderstandings, sight gags, and plenty of twists and turns in the plot.”

Tickets go on sale February 6 to the general public. Hill Country Community Theatre subscribers may make reservations beginning February 3.
