    The Ophelia L. Davis Home for Actors, Musicians and Singers is a 1920’s manor in 21st century Burbank, California. Its residents, who have called it home for over 40 years, all worked in film, radio, or TV. They include two sisters, a leading man who could never remember his lines, a man of 999 faces, and a mystic who hasn’t had a correct vision in years! Their friend and former owner of the home, Ophelia Davis, died leaving the older performers in a terrible predicament. The taxes are due and if they can’t be raised, the son of Ophelia’s attorney, Ben, will sell the house so he can make millions when the land is used for a shopping mall. At wit’s end, the performers turn to Ophelia’s Granddaughter and a nephew for help. Using all their acting skills, some clever disguises, and a missing lottery ticket, they manage to turn a garage sale into a hilarious showdown. It makes for a fun filled and unexpected ending. The strong characters and plot makes this show memorable for both actors and audiences!

    “Old Hams” was a big success! Everyone raved about it and it got a lot of laughs, which was great. People are still telling the cast how excellent they were. Thanks for a great script! —Eileen Gallant
