Nutley Little Theatre opens the 2016-2017 season with “The Last Night of Ballyhoo”.  Nine performances will take place through September 24 2016.

The Last Night of Ballyhoo is a romantic comedy set in Atlanta just before the 1939 premier of “Gone With The Wind” after the start of War in Europe. As a German-Jewish family prepares for ballyhoo, an upper crust cotillion, they find themselves reexamining their identities as Jews in the South, as well as German-Jews.

The Nutley Little Theatre was founded in 1934 as the Parish Players of Grace Episcopal Church. The company purchased its current location, “the barn, ” in 1938 about the same period of this production.
