It's 1953 and Charlotte and George Hay, an acting couple, are on tour in Buffalo, NY with a repertory consisting of Cyrano de Bergerac and Noel Coward's Private Lives. Fate has given these thespians one more shot at starring roles in The Scarlet Pimpernel epic and director Frank Capra himself is en route to Buffalo to catch their matinee performance. Mistaken identities, a deaf grandmother, sword fights and backstage romancewhat else can go wrong?
In addition to acting talent, the PAC Rats are also looking for volunteers who want to try their hands backstage. "Putting on a play takes a lot of hands," said Wagner. "We hope that those who aren't ready to step on stage will enjoy painting and building scenery, sewing costumes or making props."
