The Waynesburg University Players will present “Room Service,” Wednesday, Nov. 5, through Saturday, Nov. 8, at 7:30 p.m. each evening in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center on the campus of the University. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.
“’Room Service’ is a screwball comedy in the same tradition of many quick-witted comedies of the 1930's,” said Edward L. Powers, director of the theater program and professor of theater at Waynesburg University. “Lots of physical action with zany characters.”
Written by Allen Boretz and John Murray and directed by Powers, the play is set in 1938 at the White Way Hotel. The comedy brings to life Broadway producer Gordon Miller who is waiting on a financial backer to mount his next play.
While Miller overstays his welcome at the hotel, he has managed to a run an enormous tab, conduct secret rehearsals, feed his starving actors and keep the hotel management happy. How much longer can he hide out in the hotel before people start getting suspicious?
Reservations are suggested. For more information or to make a reservation, visit Waynesburg.ticketleap.com/room-service/ or contact Powers at 724-852-3226 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
