The Summit Playhouse is pleased to present The Last Night of Ballyhoo.

This romantic drama is from Alfred Uhry, author of Driving Miss Daisy.

The Play is directed by Sherrie Ahlin and produced by Petra Krugel and Theresa Turner and will be performed from February 21st through to March 9th.

Come see what Ballyhoo is all about! Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Broadway Play, Alfred Uhry is the first American playwright to win the "Triple Crown" of dramatic writing: Tony Award (2), an Oscar, and a Pulitzer Prize.
The Play opens in Atlanta, Georgia in December of 1939.

"Gone with the Wind" storms the silver screen with the cast in town for its world premiere. News of Hitler invading Poland is all over the radio, but the biggest concern of Atlanta's well-to-do Freitag and Levy families is finding a suitable date for daughter Lala to Ballyhoo, a lavish ball for Jewish socialites. When Uncle Adolf brings Joe, his new and very eligible assistant, home for dinner, the romantic schemes begin. 

The play is full of romance, social commentary and drama. Along the way, the show takes many twists and turns but in the end the family is pulled together.
