Moonlight and Magnolias wins top honors

-A A +A

“Moonlight and Magnolias” — currently in production at the Los Alamos Little Theatre — was one of two plays selected at last weekend’s state theatrical competition to represent New Mexico at the regional competition next month in Texas.
The play, along with “The Laramie Project” performed by the Nat Gold Players of Las Vegas, was selected from among six productions. “Moonlight and Magnolias” also won the award for “best set” among the competitors.
In addition, Larry Gibbons, who plays Ben Hecht, earned an “All-Star Cast” honor at the competition.
The nature of the competition — allowing only 10 minutes to set the show on the stage and 10 minutes to strike the set at the end of the show — means most shows take a bare-bones approach to the competition.
“Moonlight and Magnolias” featured a full set with two doors, an arched window and furniture and props to replicate a Hollywood producer’s office in the 1930s. The entire set has to fit into an 8 foot by 10-foot area before the show, and return to the “box” after the show.
“The judges commented on how impressed they were by our set,” said play director Jillian Burgin.
