Dinner Theatre: Suite Surrender
Written by Michael McKeever; performed by Under the Lights

It's 1942, and two of Hollywood's biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel—assistants, luggage, and 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. 

Directed by Max Fine '21, the cast includes Mimi Thompson '21 (Claudia), Claudia Taylor ' 21 (Athena), Henry Minervini ' 19 (Pippet), Shanil Verjee ' 21 (Murphy), Namrata Dev (Ninu)' 19 (Dora), Maureen Gill POM' 18 (Mrs. Osgood), Brian Williams ' 21 (Dunlap), Timothy Song '19 (Otis), and Evan Boyer '19 (Francis).
