193 Broadway life is all here: the desperate auditions and agents; closing of shows that were the meal ticket and romance along the way tooThe Footlights Club provides a warm sense of community for the budding female performers who lodge there. Terry Randall is a talented and witty girl from the Midwest who is determined to become a leading stage actress. But, when she’s offered a Hollywood movie contract, will she sell out her love of theatre and head West? The Broadway life of the Depression Era is all here: the heart-breaking round of auditions and agents – the sudden closing of a show that should have been a meal ticket for months – the opportunistic romances – and the rare breakthroughs to stardom. All punctuated with witty one-liners and smart comments on the uphill struggle that is ‘making it’ in show business. The women of the Footlights Club know the odds are stacked against them. As Terry says to her egotistical playwright boyfriend: “You don't know what it is to be an actress. You're a writer--if you feel something you can write it. But I can't act unless they let me.” Wednesday – Friday at 7.45pm, Saturday at 3.00pm Tickets: £12.00, concessions (Wednesday and Saturday only) £9.00 Box office 07914 657 524 or book online at: southsideplayers.co.uk or On Line : https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/southsideplayers/e-gqrapl
