Osceola Arts, whose mission is to promote, cultivate and foster interest and participation in the arts, will open 2020 with Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo later this month. Beginning Friday, January 24th and running through Sunday, February 9th, the Osceola Arts Main stage will host this popular stage comedy.

Set in 1953, playwright Ken Ludwig’s Moon Over Buffalo follows George and Charlotte Hay, a husband-and-wife team of actors, who are struggling to perform two stage productions in repertory at their local theater. Add in some personal drama, family crises and a potential visit from a hot-shot Hollywood director and what could possibly go wrong? Directed by J. Marie Bailey, this production features two Osceola Arts newcomers Alex Moore and Emily Lupfer as George and Charlotte, respectively.

Tickets are only $25, with Senior, students and group rates available. Showtimes for Moon Over Buffalo are 7:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, 2pm on Sundays, and an additional 2pm matinee performance on Saturday, February 1st.

Osceola Arts is also pleased to bring back a very popular art exhibit. The National Arts Program exhibit opened this week and will be on display through February 9th in the Main Galleries. Sponsored by the National Arts Program Foundation in support and cooperation with Osceola Arts, the exhibit features over 170 pieces created by Osceola School District and Osceola Arts employees, their immediate family members, retirees, volunteers, and current Osceola Arts students.

The National Arts Program is designed to give artists, at all skill levels, an uninhibited opportunity to exhibit their work in a professional manner and to compete for cash prizes in a number of categories. An Artist Reception will be held for the exhibit on Saturday, January 18th from 2pm-4pm. All exhibits and receptions are free and open to the public.
