Moonlights and Magnolias will run Feb 11 to 20 at Elmira Theatre

ELMIRA - The Elmira Theatre Company Inc. produc­tion of Moonlights & Magno­lias written by Ron Hutchin­son and  directed by Sue Jennings, will be adjudicated on Feb. 11, for entry into the Western Ontario Drama League Festival.

The WODL festival will be held in Owen Sound in March. Five plays will be competing for a spot in Theatre Ontario festival in May.

Moonlights & Magnolias will be running from Feb. 11 to 20, and all performances will be held at the Elmira Theatre at 76 Howard Avenue.

Set in 1939, the play has movie producer David O. Selznick stopping production of Gone With the Wind three weeks into filming and, with director Victor Fleming and writ­er Ben Hecht, creating a new screenplay in five days. 

However Ben has yet to read the script and has been lock­ed away in his office with only peanuts and bananas to eat, so Selznick and Fleming have to act the scenes for him and he types them. 

Hecht also raises concerns about anti-Semitism within Hollywood and the representation of black characters in the movie.

 Note: Because this is a time period piece, audience mem­bers need to understand that there may be some language that may offend.

Tickets are $18 each and can be purchased at Kitch­ener’s Centre in The Square box office at 519-578-1570. A Limited supply of tickets is also available at the door.
