This story is set in the 60’s in Hollywood, California in a theatrical boarding house owned by two sisters, Marion Bradford (played by Kaitlyn Meadows) and Meg Bradford (played by Rachel Bryant). The sisters are struggling to make ends meet and loss of the boarding house to foreclosure seems inevitable. The house is filled with an assortment of struggling performers, some of which are a bit eccentric, setting up some interesting and comedic situations as they experience life, with all its ups and downs. Actors in the house are played by Josh DiPalma, Chelsea MacCormack, Jordan DiPalma, Jordan Hoover, Emily Kettleson, Martin Burch, Sean Aaron and Jessica Bertholf. The technical team consists of Kristina Dant, Tali DiPalma, Sandi Mahon and Katie Kane. In the end, the message of continued hope and determination to reach your goals is conveyed in this heartwarming comedy.
