Rockers refers to the favorite chairs occupied by three very different ladies in residence at the Garden Palace Retirement Hotel. Over the course of the show, the women share their lives, their joys, their fears, their hopes, their dreams and the many problems that complicate their days and nights. This includes Sunday visits from their children. Also in the Garden Palace is an aging gent who has not lost his appeal as a prospective future companion for one of the elder ladies.
Written by Sherwood Schwartz, the play offers warmth, wit, humor, and laughs. The cast includes three of Theatre West's most recognizable actresses: Lee Meriwether, the former Miss America who had starring roles on nine television series, still recurs on daytime TV's All My Children, and stars with James Garner in the new movie The Ultimate Gift; Pat Crawford Brown, known for recurring roles on Desperate Housewives and The Gilmore Girls; and Elsa Raven, best known for roles on Days of Our Lives, Amen, and Wiseguy. Rounding out the cast are Matthew Hoffman (who co-wrote the hit film What The Bleep Do We Know?); King Stuart; and Arden Teresa Lewis.
