This Season, CTLR is partnering with Go! Running Athletic Shoe Store, Little Rock Road Runner's Club and the Running Reshoe Program to collect new and gently used shoes. "A Mile in Their Shoes" campaign has already kicked off, but theater goers can help CTLR collect shoes with this performance. In exchange for their donation, patrons will receive $1 off the admission price. Donations will be collected and distributed to organizations like Our House, CASA, local High Schools and other under-served areas. For specific information about the "A Mile in Their Shoes" campaign, please contact Erin Taylor at Go! Running. 501-813-7155.
Along with the shoe program, the Moonlight and Magnolias cast has scheduled a 'Pocket Preview'* of the show April 25th at 7:30pm. On this one night, admission is whatever the patron can pay. *CTLR's "Pocket Previews" are actually final dress rehearsals which are open to the public. No admission is required, but we will be accepting donations to support the theatre. No reservations will be accepted, as seating is strictly on a first-come, first-serve basis.
An Overview of Moonlight and Magnolias
1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaptation of Margaret Mitchell's novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn't work. So what's an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off the film's stars, gossip columnists and his own father-in-law, Selznick sends a car for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint of one of the most successful and beloved films of all time.
