Starlight presents Plaza Suite in Anthem
Staff Report ~ 1/20/2010
Starlight Community Theater, presents Plaza Suite, one of Broadway’s biggest hits by legendary playwright Neil Simon, Friday through Sunday at Boulder Creek High School.
Plaza Suite, which has been a hit with audiences for more than 30 years, is a three-act play that details the misadventures of three very different couples as they face crucial moments in their lives – all in the same hotel suite at the famed Plaza Hotel in New York. Starlight’s production stars locals Jeff Coles and Michelle Ribadeneira.
The play tells the story of three couples who consecutively occupy Suite 719 at The Plaza. In Act One, a suburban couple takes the suite while their house is being painted. It turns out to be the same suite they honeymooned in years ago – but was yesterday their anniversary, or today?
The second act features a Hollywood producer who, after three failed marriages, calls a high school sweetheart who over the years has idolized him from afar, but who is now more than he bargained for.
The final act finds a couple fighting about the best way to get their soon-to-be-married daughter out of the locked bathroom and to the ballroom where guests await the nuptials.
Advance ticket prices are $12. Amex/Visa/MC accepted for tickets ordered online or by calling 623-566-7991. Tickets purchased at the door cost $15.
Evening performances will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday while a matinee performance will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday at Boulder Creek’s mini auditorium.
