Welcome

Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in City Theatre of Independence. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization. Everything you see on stage as well as behind the scenes is produced by volunteers who are members of the local community.

Our mission is to provide an equal opportunity for individuals to actively participate and learn about live theatre production and theatre company operations; thereby providing a live entertainment experience for our theatre patrons.

We welcome new participants and members and encourage anyone interested in taking part to contact us. We hope you will consider becoming a contributor to our organization either by getting involved with your time, or by making a donation or even becoming a sponsor. There are also opportunities to volunteer at various fundraisers or performances.

We produce four plays and one musical each season. We also hold an annual Playwright Festival that features original works of ten-minute plays. At the end of each season, we celebrate with an awards banquet.

You can find more about all of these opportunities through out our website.

Description

Written by:  Caroline Smith

Directed by: Michael Masterson

SYNOPSIS: Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two "mature" cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly's dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel's, it's a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!
