"Moon Over Buffalo" by Ken Ludwig is a laugh-out-loud farce stuffed with "comic invention, running gags, and a neat sense of absurdity " (The New York Post). In the play, Charlotte and George Hay are on tour in Buffalo, doing “Cyrano de Bergerac” and “Private Lives” in repertory, when they receive word that Frank Capra, the famous Hollywood director, is coming to town to see their matinee. This could be their last chance at stardom!

Because the City of Elmhurst now offers quarterly electronics recycling, the College event will not be collecting electronics.
