When wallflower Charlie Baker goes on a getaway to a fishing lodge in Georgia, all he wants is peace and quiet. He can't avoid the other guests, though, so a helpful friend "saves" him by claiming he is a foreigner who cannot speak or understand English. Comedy ensues as everyone unwittingly reveals their secrets and scandals to Charlie, thinking he can't understand. What started as a serene getaway becomes a hive of drama and intrigue in this exceedingly clever and outrageously funny farce. Learn More

The laugh-filled story of a theatre producer fighting against all odds to keep his company alive during a tough economy!
Producer Gordon Miller is holed up in a hotel with his 22-member cast, rehearsing a new play for Broadway. The Great Depression is in full swing, but the play is sure to be a hit, if only Miller can find a financial backer -- all the while keeping his hungry actors fed, the hotel manager thinking the bill is being paid, his inexperienced playwright in the dark, and the room service waiter thinking he has a role in the production. Opening night approaches, but will the curtain ever go up? No scheme is too crazy for this determined band of show business misfits as they embark on a wild, fast-paced ride that has audiences rolling in the aisles!
A hilarious rediscovered comedy! Room Service was a huge hit on Broadway in 1937 before being made into a movie with the Marx Brothers and Lucille Ball.
