Theatre West opens its spring production of “The Supporting Cast” by George Furth on Thursday, March 1.
In this comedy, Ellen, the wife of a successful author, has written a book about friends who are spouses of celebrities and what it is like to be married to “Somebody Famous.”
She has invited the friends to her house on the beach at Malibu to let them read advance copies and to break the news to them gently that they are depicted warts and all.
Appearing on the Jack Coyne stage are Debbie Hendrickson as Ellen, Roseanne Murphy as Sally, Cindy Wesolowski as Mae, Carrena Lukas as Florrie and Wes Ryan as Arnold.
Bonnie Ross directs. Ross recently appeared in “Blithe Spirit” by Noel Coward and directed “Skin Deep” by Jon Lonoff.
The crew includes stage manager Shelby Barton, lights and sound technicians Levi Jess and Jenny Metcalf, special effects person Danny Roberson, property mistress Ashley Ross and assistant director Linda Jackson.
The play will be presented at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings through March 24.
The box office, located at 3536 S.E. Highway 101 in Lincoln City, is open on show days at 2 p.m. or tickets may be purchased in advance by leaving a message at 541-994-5663.
