Solano College Theater Department Presents:
"Moon Over Buffalo" directed by Carla Spindt
Following in the same madcap comedy tradition as Lend Me a Tenor, this uproarious comedy centers on the lives of George and Charlotte Hay, has-been actors whose personal and financial lives are on the brink of disaster. Just as they receive word that they might have one last chance at stardom, everything begins to go wrong…!
