LATROBE, PA—Saint Vincent Summer Theatre (SVST) continues its 53rdseason with “Moon Over Buffalo” (June 27 through July 2). “Some Enchanted Evening: The Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein” (July 18 through 23) will wrap up the season.

“Moon Over Buffalo” centers on George and Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950s. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom by impressing the famous film director Frank Capra. 

“Ken Ludwig’s ‘Moon Over Buffalo’ is classic farce at its finest. It’s the characters that make a farce come alive and be funny along with a creative and entertaining storyline,” Greggory Brandt, Assistant Professor of Theater at SVC and Producing Artistic Director for SVST said. “I’ve learned over the many years of directing that laughter truly is the best medicine, and this show won’t disappoint. I directed this hysterical farce 8 years ago, and I look forward to hearing the laughter again this summer.


“Moon Over Buffalo” stars Lawrence Lesher; Erin Seaberg; Cyndi Plyler; Sarah Hennessy; Justin Massetto, C’22; Sara Chilli; Thom Brown III; and Daniel. A Krack. 

All shows this season are directed by Brandt and will take place in the Performing Arts Center, located within the Robert S. Carey Student Center on campus. There will be three matinee performances on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. and five evening performances Tuesday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. for each production. Complimentary transportation will be provided from the parking areas to the Performing Arts Center. Handicap parking closer to the theater is also available.

The Cabaret, the post-show reception outside on the Carey Center patio, also returns this summer. There will be a charge of $5 per person, which will include hotdogs, popcorn and various drinks for patrons’ enjoyment.
