Plaza Suite comes to Colonial stage / September 13, 2017
The Colonial Actors Theater Society’s production of Plaza Suite is set to open on Saturday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m.

Neil Simon’s original version of Plaza Suite opened on Broadway at the Plymouth Theatre on Feb. 14, 1968. The play is composed of three acts, each involving different characters but all set in Suite 719 of New York City’s Plaza Hotel. You will experience three different types of comedy as you watch each couple interact with one another in their isolated situations. The play delivers romantic, dark and slapstick comedy, literally something for everyone. Time Magazine called it “An Avalanche of Hilarity!”

Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? Next, a Hollywood producer, who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife who turns out to be more than he bargained for! The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where wedding guests await her!

This cast consists of: Cole Williams, as both the Bellhop and Bordon Eister, Angela Adams as Karen Nash, Peter Balys as Sam Nash, Thomas Fowler as the Waiter, Kari Edmonds as Jean McCormack, Eric Sjurseth as Jason Kiplinger, Karen Terry as Muriel Tate, Christy Edmonds as Norma Hubley, Greg Thrift as Roy Hubley, and Lexy Sjurseth as Mimsey Hubley.

C.A.T.S. volunteers have been working tirelessly for nearly two months in preparation for their upcoming performances. They have devoted hours to rehearsals and learning lines.

Performance dates are Oct. 7, 13 and 14 at 8 p.m with Sunday matinee performances on Oct. 8 and 15 at 2:30 p.m. Visit or call the Colonial Center’s Box Office at (434) 262-4170 for tickets, pricing, and more information. The Box Office is located at 220 South Mecklenburg Avenue in South Hill, and is open from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
