BY: Metro Source Staff | October 09, 2013
ALDEN - The Alden Christian Theatre Society, 1470 Church Street in the village of Alden, presents the comedy King O’ the Moon, Tom Dudzick’s continuing story of the Pazinski family set in Buffalo. The play will start at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18, 19, 25 and 26 and at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 20 and 27.
The performances will be held at ACTS, 1470 Church Street in the village of Alden.
Dudzick’s sequel to Over the Tavern follows the Pazinskis into the tumultuous 60s: The story begins as the children gather at the Pazinski home and tavern for the commemoration of the fifth anniversary of their father Chet Pazinski’s death.
And a lot has changed: oldest son Eddie is heading to Vietnam and has a new bride, Rudy’s protesting the war and is AWOL from the seninary, Annie’s going through a messy (but secret) divorce and the widowed Mrs. Pazinski has a new beau, Walter.
Performing in the ensemble are Georjean Labuzzetta, reprising her role as the feisty and quick-witted Mrs. Pazinski; Joe Hoiden as Walter Nowak, Max Gucinski as Rudy, the youngest; Erin Sheehan, reprising her role as Annie; Michael Green as Eddie, Victoria Elliott as Eddie’s pregnant wife, Maureen Blake Pazinski, and Dylan Brozyna as Georgie, the Pazinski’s learning-disabled son. Brozyna also directs the show.
The opening date for the show is one week later than the date originally announced in August. The show will open Oct. 18; there are no shows Oct. 11, 12 and 13.
Tickets for King O’ The Moon are available at ACTS; reservations can be made by calling 937-7770. Tickets are $9 for students and seniors and $11 general admission.
