Mistaken identity, misunderstandings and an assortment of doors make for madness and mayhem in a day in the life of an acting family.
But the show must go on, as the Carrollwood Players presents Ken Ludwig's backstage farce, Moon Over Buffalo.
The cast includes Keith Bjorklund, Lauren Goode, Linda Hamrell, Kevin Kobasko, John LaFree, Alison Priester, Lauren Rodriguez and Thomas George Thomas, and the play is directed by Jack Steeley.

Celtic harpist performance:
In addition to being a harpist, Fiona Davidson is a singer, poet and storyteller. Although she's from one of the most remote parts of the Scottish Isle of Arran, she travels the world and revives the ancient Celtic tradition of the Bard. In myth and legend, the Bard is depicted as a mysterious multi-faceted figure: a harpist, singer, poet, teller of tales and a Druid.
Davidson will perform at 8 tonight at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Tampa, 11400 Morris Bridge Road. Tickets are $10 at the door. For information, call (813) 625-2688.
