"Hollywood Arms" at the Albright Theatre

The Albright Theatre Company brings "Hollywood Arms," by Carrie Hamilton & Carol Burnett, to the stage.

Three generations of women, one touching story. Inspired by the life story of Carol Burnett, “Hollywood Arms” is the moving story of three generations of women living on welfare in a one-room apartment. The characters include a tough, funny, yet tender, pill-popping Christian Scientist grandmother; a beautiful wide-eyed and distant mother and struggling writer, drowning her ambitions in a bottle; a loving but absent and alcoholic father; and a young girl whose only escape is up on the roof of their rundown apartment house where she creates her own magical world. In the end, it's a story about shattered hopes and realized dreams.

Performance dates are:
March 1, 2 & 3, 8, 9 & 10, 15 & 16 with show times on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2vp.m..
