Director Kathy Riedy
Assistant Director Deb Sheffield


It’s 1942, and two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotelassistants, luggage and a legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance...that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite.


Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the ‘30s and ‘40s.


“A rib-tickling good time.” —Hap Erstein, Palm Beach Post
