In 1939 Hollywood is abuzz. Legendary producer David O. Selznick has shut down production of his new epic, Gone with the Wind, a film adaption of Margaret Mitchell’s novel. The screenplay, you see, just doesn’t work. So what’s an all-powerful movie mogul to do? While fending off Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Summoning both to his office, he locks the doors, closes the shades, and on a diet of bananas and peanuts, the three men labor over five days to fashion a screenplay that will become the blueprint for one of the most successful and beloved films of all time. Performances: Tues, Thurs, Fri & Sat - 7:30pm Sun & Wed - 2:00pm Doors open 30 minutes before the show. Concessions only $2 each!!

**The Great Plains Theatre burned in a fire on July 23, 2014. Please visit the website for information on show schedules/locations.
