Moonlight and Magnolias

by Ron Hutchinson Directed by Richard Cowan Sponsored by Carol Burdette “It was a civilization Gone with the Wind…” but this blockbuster almost wasn’t made. The legendary  producer halts production, fending off angry actors, and drags a new screenwriter and director into the fray. Locked together in the producer’s office, they aim to rewrite the script, but encounter one  problem: the screenwriter has never read the book. Watch as director and producer dramatically  reenact the novel’s plot, hilariously portraying all the characters. "Tomorrow is another day," but can  the South ever rise again from this protrayal?  Production: September 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, 15, 2013

And how would you have fared, if challenged by riddles in the dark? (CAYT) Production: October 17, 18, 19, 20, 2013
