It’s 1942, and two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel to perform in a USO show – assistants, luggage, and legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance… that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite! Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to the classic farces of the 30s and 40s.


Bernard S. Dunlap – General Manager of the Palm Beach Royale Hotel & Spa.
Claudia McFadden – America’s beloved Matron of Song.
Athena Sinclair – a Great Star of Stage and Screen.
Murphy Stevens – Athena’s personal secretary.
Mr. Pippet – Claudia’s personal secretary.
Dora Del Rio – a Gossip Columnist.
Mrs. Everett P. Osgood – a Society Matron & President of the Palm Beach Ladies for Unity.
Francis – a bellhop.
Otis – a bellhop.
