The Actors Theater of Orcas Island announces seven performances of the hilarious farce "Hotbed Hotel" written by Michael Parker and directed by Doug Bechtel at the Orcas Grange.
Terri and Brian Cody (Gillian Smith and Nate Feder) are hoping to sell their "One Star Hotel" in the Florida Keys to the only man who has expressed any interest in buying it - Sam Lewis (Tom Gossett) from New York who is coming to visit the hotel. Afraid that he will think the hotel is a bad investment because there is only guest at the height of the tourist season, Terri and Brian devise a plan to make the hotel appear busier and more prosperous than it actually is. Their staff (Vanessa Ryder and Larry Coddington) will masquerade as paying guests, thereby, giving Mr. Lewis the impression that the hotel is overflowing with loyal customers and vacationers. Add to the mix a retired British Major (John Mazzarella), the "Barracuda" (Suzanne Gropper) and assorted girlfriends and wives (Pat Ayers, Melinda Milligan and Patty Monaco) You can see where this is leadingit is a farce after all
"Hotbed Hotel" opens on Friday, February 15th with additional performances on February 16th, 22nd, 23rd, March 1st, 2nd and closing night on Sunday, March 3rd. Performances are at 7:30. Tickets are $10 and are available at Darvill's, on-line at www.orcasactors.com or at the door. "Hotbed Hotel" is the first production at the Grange where the audience will sit in the new theater seats with lots of leg room.
