Time: 7:30pm CDT September 21, 2019
Location: Wartburg Theatre
Carthage Theatre alumni from the 2010 cast of “Room Service” will return for a staged reading of the play at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21 in the Wartburg Theatre.
While at Carthage, the cast of “Room Service” always said that, in 10 years, they would get back together and do a staged reading of the show that had so many memories tied to it.
“Room Service” is a farcical comedy about theater people living and producing a play in the White Way Hotel in New York City. The only problem? They have no money to do so. After checking the books, the hotel staff attempt to get this whole production team out. Will the director, producer, and theatre troupe find a way to wipe their hotel bill clean before the regional manager kicks them to the curb?
Fake deaths, squatters rights, zany games of hide-and-seek, and the age-old theatre motto “the show must go on at whatever cost” all spring to life in this charming comedy. Come enjoy this performance as theatre alumni reunite a decade later to relive this great moment they had at Carthage.
The Wartburg Theatre is located inside the David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Natural and Social Sciences.
