The 14th Grade Players hit the stage over the weekend with the hilarious revolving door comedy “Hotbed Hotel.” The show follows Terri and Brian Cody as they struggle with their little hotel in the Florida Keys and hope to sell it to big shot Sam Lewis from New York.
“I look back at all the student theater experiences I’ve had and the most fun I’ve had are in big comedies,” said senior and director Ryan Jarome. ”This is my last show and I wanted everyone to leave smiling and having a good time.”
Fellow Senior Andy Brown played Major Ponsenby, the hotel’s permanent resident and an Arab sheik who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Major. “This show was a lot of fun to work on,” said Brown. “It was a marathon and I never stopped moving but I had a great time.”
“Hotbed Hotel” had the audience in a constant fit of laughter. Freshman Jessica Hang had a great time coming to see her first GW play. “I was impressed at how good it was and I’ll definitely be back,” she said. Her friend Emma West also had a great time. “The show was innovative with all it did in such a small space,” said West.
If you missed the show, catch the next theater performances. Forbidden Planet Production’s production of “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” and Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” both run April 24-26.
