Sitka Community Theater producer Shannon Haugland discusses this year’s performance of Ken Ludwig’s “Moon Over Buffalo,” which opens 7 PM Friday April 6 at the Sitka Performing Arts Center, and plays again at 7 PM on Saturday and Sunday (tickets $10/$7 at Old Harbor Books). The play is a contemporary work (and star vehicle on Broadway for Carol Burnett), but set in a repertory theater in the 1950s. Language and situations are PG.
