“Last Night of Ballyhoo,” by Alfred Uhry, author of “Driving Miss Daisy,” is set in Atlanta on the eve of the premiere of the movie “Gone with the Wind” in 1939. The play focuses on a family that gets pulled apart and then mended together with plenty of comedy, romance and revelations along the way. Events take several unexpected turns as the characters face where they come from and are forced to deal with who they really are.

This Anoka-Ramsey production will be directed by theatre faculty member Lisa Weaver.

Tickets are $8 in advance at the college bookstore, online at webs.AnokaRamsey.edu/theatre (Buy Tickets Now), or at the door an hour prior to the performance.
