Star on the Door
Cinema star Doreen Lewis is about to make her Broadway debut in The Inspector and the Aunt opposite her fellow actor—and not-so-secret admirer—Paul Burnside. While waiting in her dressing room, Doreen mistakenly takes a phone call intended for her dresser. What Doreen discovers: Mrs. Lewis is pregnant. What Doreen doesn’t know: the Mrs. Lewis in question is not her, but her dresser, who is is secretly wed to her son. Thrown into a panic by the unexpected news, and fearing she’ll be fired from the show, Doreen sets out to get her revenge on Paul—the “father.” The ensuing action piles on the laughs as the actress attempts sabotage, the playwright bemoans the mangling of his work, and the cash-strapped producer fears for his safety.
Rome Community Theater
Before 1953, the theater community of Rome was a theater community divided. Two local companies presented plays: the Rome Theater Guild and the Rome Civic Theater. The Guild was more financially stable, but the Civic had more volunteers. Seeing how they could benefit each other, the artists at each group decided to join forces and become the Rome Community Theater.
Decades later, the curtain is still being raised on fresh RCT productions. And as the company has grown, the audiences have, too—approximately 1,000 theatergoers flock to see seasonal offerings of musicals, comedies, murder mysteries, and melodramas. The excitement unfolds within the intimacy of a tiered, 230-seat space where everybody has an interrupted view, unless it's Mandatory Lincoln Hat Day.
