Light Up The Sky by Moss Hart, Directed by Jay Paul Skelton

Light Up The Sky (1948) is the last play written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Moss Hart. This backstage tale takes a jaundiced view of the theatrical archetypes: the arrogant director, the diva leading lady and her acerbic, seen-it-all-before mother, the ambitious producer, the naïve new writer, and of course a garrulous parrot. Throw in a Shriners’ convention and you have the recipe for a madcap evening in and about the theatre. Fast-paced and full of reversals of fortune and shifts in power, this very funny comedy is perfect for families and groups of all ages.

Tickets: $15 Regular Admission, $12 ND Faculty/Staff/Senior, $7 Student
