Carrollwood Players to Present CALIFORNIA SUITE, 10/23-11/14

Four diverse and entertaining stories are presented in the Carrollwood Players Theatre production of Neil Simon's California Suite, at 4333 Gunn Highway, Friday, October 23 through Saturday, November 14 with performances Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and Sundays at 3 pm.

The always witty, often insightful, and frequently hilarious vignettes center on guests at a posh Beverly Hills hotel.

The first segment features a divorced couple in an acrimonious meeting to determine who will get custody of their daughter. In the second episode, poor Marvin, in town for his nephew's bar mitzvah, must explain to his wife, as only a Neil Simon character can, the existence of a very drunk prostitute in his room. In yet another story, we learn that the best laid vacation plans of two couples can go riotously awry. And finally, a pair of Hollywood stars are in town for the Academy Awards, as well as some amusing, eyebrow raising activities. From droll to funny to sidesplitting, California Suite is American theatre at its most entertaining.

The play, directed by Nancy Fueyo, stars Maryann Bardi, Bill Pandolfo, Randy Rosenthal, Karen Lorenzetti, Autumn Pandolfo, Petra Sussman, Jim Moss, Max Mantius, Scott Mosquera, and Brittany Kociuba.

Nancy said, "Our production of California Suite adds a modern twist to the classic Neil Simon comedy. Check in and check out the laughs, quick witted jokes and surprises that only a Simon comedy can provide."

Tickets, $20 for adults, $17 for seniors, students and military with valid ID, may be purchased online at http://carrollwood-players-theatre.ticketleap.com.
