I never thought I would be Prissy the maid ...
Hi. My name is Mark Rosenthal and I will be playing David O Selznick in the forthcoming production of Moonlight and Magnolias.
This is the first time that I will be performing at Millgate Arts Centre and can't wait for the play to start. Selznick was the notoriously demanding and short fused, Jewish Hollywood producer of Gone with the Wind. The film took three years to make and threatened to go off the rails many times during its production. But a five day period turned it around and made Gone with the Wind the Hollywood smash we all know and love.
The play is both dark and hilarious in equal measure and it's a pleasure to be playing such a great character and rehearsing with such a fantastic cast.
After all, It's not often you get the chance to play Scarlet O'Hara, Rhet Butler, Ashley Wilkes and Prissy the maid all in one production. It's definitely one not to be missed!
Moonlight and Magnolias opens Saturday 30th September and runs till 7th October. Full details and tickets available on www.saddleworthplayers.org.uk/shows/all.
