Rosengren directing 'Four Old Broads' at the Barn Theater

Note: a ticket link is posted at the end of this web article.

Retired burlesque queen Beatrice Shelton desperately needs a vacation from Magnolia Place Assisted Living. The "Sassy Seniors Cruise" may be just the ticket if she can convince her best friend to stop praying and go with her. But strange things have been happening ever since Nurse Pat Jones began working here. The new resident is losing her memory, another is obsessed with planning her funeral, and the retired Elvis impersonator keeps trying to bed every woman in the building. Can they solve the mystery before her ship sets sail?

"Four Old Broads" is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.

Show dates in Willmar are: September 28, 29, 30 at 7 p.m .; and October 1 at 2 p.m. to conclude the show.

Directing the show is Thomas Rosengren, B-B-E Class of 1996, who is no stranger to the local theater scene. Past Brooten high school graduates Becky Sorenson and LuAnn (Rudningen) Glieden are both cast members.
