OTA picks ‘Rose’s Dilemma’ for first play of ’14-’15 season

Sequim’s Olympic Theatre Arts has announced it will open its 2014-2015 season on Sept. 5 with Neil Simon’s “Rose’s Dilemma.”

Directed by Karen Hogan, the comedy features cast members Sharon DelaBarre, Tom Darter, Jennifer Sies and Dalton Williamson.

“‘Rose’s Dilemma’ has the quick humor and snappy banter Simon is known for,” Hogan said. “Rose is a writer who is facing financial disaster and has terminal writer’s block. Her dead lover comes back to help her overcome it. Think ‘The Ghost and Mrs. Muir’ meets Lillian Hellman and Dashiell Hammett. It’s funny and poignant and, in the end, let’s us know that love endures.”

“Rose’s Dilemma” opens Sept. 5 and runs through Sept. 21, with performances on Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. A $10 preview (free for OTA members) is Sept. 4 and a pay what you will performance is offered Sept. 11.

All performances are at Olympic Theatre Arts Center, 414 N. Sequim Ave.

Ticket prices for regular performances are $16 or $14 for OTA members and military personnel. Children 16 and younger are $10.
