Local Playwright Directs Butterfly in Overalls Opening at The Green Room

Local playwright and director, Molly Bass, is at the helm of The Green Room’s upcoming production Butterfly in Overalls. Molly wrote this play 30 years ago, and she is very excited to adapt and update the script. Be ready for a unique and magical experience! The show is produced by Azalea Glen and Narrow Gauge Coffee & Café. It will be presented in the Sherry Butler Black Box Theatre. Tickets will be available starting March 22, 2024.

In the show you’ll meet Shock Taylor, a boofy-haired, blow-pop-loving, wanna-be beautician who wreaks havoc on the hair of the ladies from the Sunshine Retirement Village.  Her grandfather’s unfortunate firecracker explosion causes Shock to lose her spark, but with the help of the local funeral director and the Sunshine ladies, her protective cocoon starts to crack. Winner of the Marty Klein Comedy Award at UCLA, Butterfly is about loss and love and laughter – pretty much life.

Performances are scheduled for April 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21. On Friday and Saturday, the performances will be at 7:30pm. On Sunday, the performances will be at 3:00pm.
