The Kentwood Players theater group will present Hollywood Arms, a play adapted from actress Carol Burnett’s memoir “One More Time,” beginning Friday, Nov. 11 through Dec. 17 at the Westchester Playhouse.
Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays at the playhouse, 8301 Hindry Ave., Westchester.
Written by Carrie Hamilton and Burnett, Hollywood Arms is set in Hollywood in 1941 and 1951, and centers on the heartbreak and laughter shared by three generations of women living on welfare in a dingy Hollywood apartment house.
The cast of characters, based on Burnett and her real-life relatives, includes “no-nonsense” grandmother Nanny; Louise, a beautiful, alcoholic mother determined to be a writer for movie magazines; Jody, an absent father who is struggling with his own demons; and Helen, a young girl whose only escape is the rooftop of their rundown building, where she creates her own magical world and dreams of a successful show business career.
Featured in the cast are Laurel Andersen, Mason Bromberg, Francesca Farina, Emma Hatton, Sam Huntington, Rich Little, Alice Lunsford, Joseph Roman, Cynthia Rothschild and Valerie Ruel.
The production is directed by Lewis Hauser and produced by Susan Goldman Weisbarth by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service.
Tickets are $18 with a $2 discount for seniors, students and servicemembers. To purchase tickets, (310) 645-5156 during box office hours, Tuesday through Saturday from 4 to 7 p.m.
