The Barn Theatre presents "Suite Surrender"

(MONTVILLE, NJ) -- The Barn Theatre in Montville, NJ kicks off their 96th season with the rib tickling, side splitting comedic farce Suite Surrender, written by Michael McKeever and directed by Todd Mills of Boonton, running weekends from September 22 to October 8, 2023. The setting is 1942 at the Palm Beach Royale, where we meet two of Hollywood's most famous Diva's Claudia McFadden played by Montclair's Jessi Baden and Athena Sinclair played by Montclair's Rachelle Rennagel.

Much to the dismay of hotel General Manager Bernard Dunlap played by David Romankow of Gillette they are accidentally booked into the same suite. Five doors, two bumbling bellhops played by Ryan Green of Hillsdale and Arthur Carlson of Nutley, a society matron, played by Annette Winter of Montvilleand a nosey reporter played by Erika Wynzel of Lake Hiawatha what could be funnier?

Rounding out the cast are the divas’ assistants, lovesick Murphy managing diva Sinclair played by Emily Bonaria of Springfield, NJ and long-suffering Mr. Pippet played by Donald Paulsuleus of Mine Hill who trails in the wake of diva McFadden and her scrappy little dog Mr. Boodles played by a local rescued dog.

Suite Surrender has it all – mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s.
