About the play:
In the Rest Room at Rosenblooms by Ludmilla Bollow
This contemporary comedy reveals the hopes, dreams and fears of three elderly ladies who spark their lonely lives by meeting daily in the rest room lounge of an outdated downtown department store, and the crazy/touching events that occur the day one of them is supposedly threatened. There's Myrah, with a fighting spirit that totters into the absurd; Violet, a leftover from the days of elegance; and Winifred, a wisp of a woman who wanders in and out of reality. A steady stream of bizarre events occur as the ladies seek to protect Winifred from being taken away by her sister Clare, leading to a blockade of the rest room and a final triumph over those who would threaten their fragile freedom.

Casting breakdown:

4 women who play women in their 60's and 70's.

9 non-speaking parts, great for someone who can't remember lines, just starting out in the theater, or not able to attend every rehearsal.  These are walk-on roles.

Please note- Some parts have already been casted since this play was rescheduled when canceled due to Covid. 

Auditions will be cold reading from the script.

A read-through will be held Monday, March 7th and rehearsals will be held Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 7-9pm beginning March 13th.

Dessert Theater is a play followed by a dessert reception in the Dickinson Room (3rd floor of the Smyrna Opera House).  Attendees are invited to attend to enjoy desserts, generously provided by the Smyrna Opera House guild, and mingle with the cast.
