Moon Over Buffalo Opens This Saturday At Sutter Street Theatre

Don't miss the hilarious comedy, Moon Over Buffalo, opening this Saturday, February 23 at 8:00p.m. followed by a reception with the actors and director at Sutter Street Theatre.  Moon Over Buffalo continues on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00p.m. and Sundays at 4:00p.m. through March 17.

In the madcap comedy tradition of Lend me a Tenor, the hilarious Moon Over Buffalo centers on George and
Charlotte Hay, fading stars of the 1950's. At the moment, they're playing Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George's dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, abetted by a visit from their daughter's clueless fiancé and hilarious uncertainty about which play they're actually performing, caused by Charlotte's deaf old stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George's body. Ludwig stuffs Moon Over Buffalo with comic invention, running gags and a neat sense of absurdity. "Moon Over Buffalo is by far Broadway's funniest, most enjoyable lighthearted play," says Entertainment Weekly.

Supercuts Stylist Will Shave Her Head To Help Cure Childhood Cancer

Supercuts Stylist, Olga Howerton, will shave her head to help cure childhood cancer!

On March 2, the Roseville Galleria will be hosting a St. Baldrick’s event. Olga Howerton, the manager of the Folsom Supercuts, will be shaving all 20+ inches of her beautiful hair in honor of children who are facing the battle of their lives.

Olga hopes to raise $30,000 in donations for St Baldrick’s. Throughout the month of February, all of the Sacramento area Supercuts salons will be accepting donations to help Olga reach her goal.

"We have been involved with St. Baldrick’s for a couple of years and hearing people's stories touched me. I thought, why can't I do that? It's only hair. It grows back. If I can bring this money to the event to help someone's life then why not?" says Howerton pictured with Emma Young.

Emma, age four, was diagnosed with leukemia at age two, and hopes to attend the Roseville Galleria event to help shave Olga's head.

Funds raised at the St. Baldrick’s event, hosted by Keaton Rafael Memorial, will go toward childhood cancer research, and also help support local children with cancer and their families. For more information visit, or your local Supercuts salon.

If you would like more information about this event, please call Supercuts Event Coordinator Ashley Allison at 916-307-3527, or email Ashley at
