Description

MAC Studio Theatre presents

Spotlight Parade IV: High Art for Hard Times

Admission is free. Donations gratefully accepted. Fun for all ages!


 

It's 1936. The Great Depression roars on and the Zanfield Theatre is calling it quits! When the curtain comes down on the final show, our ensemble is out of a job and out on the streets. That is, until Hallie Flanagan and the recently formed Federal Theatre Project come calling. the goal? Putting theatre professionals back to work and keeping ticket prices low for the unemployed masses. Showgirls and Broadway stars duke it out for a place in the cast. Gangsters and union bosses fight over control of the dough. The aim is to make high art in hard times, but how far can they go before the Feds step in and shut the whole thing down?
