A Twilight Zone like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for. Eric Amleaf will be directing “Tender Offers”. “Tender Offers” written by Wendy Wasserstein The play focuses on a distant father and his nine-year-old daughter. When he arrives late to pick her up from dance class, they discuss their lack of communication and why he missed her dance recital. Arnold Galin will be directing “I’m Herbert”. “I’m Herbert is about two old, old people sitting on a porch in a pair of rocking chairs and talking. Just talking and of course they don’t know how funny they are. Each has had one or more previous marriages and perhaps a few flings, but they are hazy as to details. In fact, they don’t always know which one the other one is. Tickets are on sell at the Rome Community Theater box office on the day of the performance. General admission is $10.00. Curtain Oct 22 at 7:30 pm and Oct 23 at 2:30 pm
