Brandon to stage ‘Roomers’
BRANDON — The Brandon Town Players will present “Roomers” by Jerome McDonough on Friday, Aug. 31, and Saturday, Sept. 1, in the Brandon Town Hall with a 7:30 p.m. curtain each night.
“Roomers” takes place at a run down brownstone in New York City; the time is the present. Obviously the room was once the parlor of a rather nice home, but time, negligence and avarice have taken their toll. “Roomers” is a farce in two acts about a cramped space filled with many zany people. It is a play in which madness rules, with no hint of underlying black comedy or horror.
Cast members include: Charlie Gilliam, Chris Bretana, Richard Reed, Danica Stein, Martha Jo Perkins, Lennon Philo, Elijah Keane, Lyn Des Marais, Kathy Mathis, Lois Jacubetz, Kenny Levine, Courtney Towne, Danielle McKeighan and Dennis Marden. Will Mathis is the lighting and sound director, Kathy Mathis is the costume and prop director and Dennis Marden is the production director.
All tickets are $6 and can be purchased at the door the night of the performance.
