Special ticket offers will be available to local theater groups and educators for Westport Country Playhouse's "Room Service."
"Room Service," a backstage comedy about the business of putting on a play, is on stage from Tuesday, Oct. 8 through Sunday, Oct. 27.
"We're happy to share this hilarious show about the behind-the-scenes antics of mounting a theatrical production with our local theater groups who will no doubt identify with the theme and the inside jokes," said Michael Ross, Playhouse managing director. "We also think our area educators will appreciate it from the perspective that `all the world's a stage.'"
