CCP to present Suite Surrender Nov. 8

CROSSVILLE — It’s 1942, and two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel. With personal assistants, luggage and their legendary feud with one another in tow, they are somehow assigned to the same presidential suite. The hilarious characters in the internationally acclaimed farce called Suite Surrender are swept up in the action as mistaken identities, overblown egos, love interests and even a little lap dog named “Mr. Boodles” intertwine in this all-out love note to the wonderful farces of the '30s and '40s.

Director Britt Hancock’s cast of CCP favorites includes Weslie Webster and Patty Payne as the dueling divas; Nicole Bégué Hackmann and Greg Pendzick as their trusted assistants; Jason Ross as the beleaguered hotel manager; Lauren Marshall as the gossip columnist trying to get a scoop; and Michael Ruff and Chaz Sanders as the bellhops who find themselves caught up in the chaos. Carol Irvin tops off this frothy mix as “Mrs. Everett P. Osgood" — a society matron and president of the Palm Beach Ladies for Unity — who is just a little bit daft.

Suite Surrender opens on Nov. 8 and runs through Dec. 20. Call 484-5000 for tickets/information or visit www.ccplayhouse.com.  

Currently at the Playhouse, To Kill a Mockingbird (rated PG, sponsored by Kenneth and Carol Ann Chadwell, Looney, Looney and Chadwell, PLLC) through Nov. 3; Ragtime (rated PG, sponsored by Dr. Calley J. Elsea, Cloudland Dental) through Nov. 16; and A Sanders Family Christmas (rated G, sponsored by Beef and Barrel, The Blind Zebra, Red’s Ale House and Cannon’s) runs through Dec. 22. Tickets and information are also available for Southern Stars Symphonic Brass and other events. All CCP productions are made possible through sponsor support, with additional support provided by the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
