Play (Non-Musical)

Welcome to Roots’ School of Theatre. A children’s theatre for young performers in grades 3rd – 8th. Our productions are very special as we only accept 20 or fewer actors per production (depending on the show) to ensure quality of instruction and experience for each young actor. All young performers are guaranteed a significant speaking role in the production. 

Showdown at Palm Tree Pines

By: Tess Baker

Flo and Donny rule the Home Owners Association at Palm Tree Pines retirement community with an iron fist – until their freewheeling new neighbors Mitzi and Jerry come to town. The new couple arrives armed with yoga, incense, and fresh ideas about how how to run the place, but Flo and Donny have no intention of giving up their spot without a fight. When all the seniors start to pick sides, every aerobics class and bingo game becomes a battleground for politics and pranks. But when an even greater threat to the serenity of senior living arrives on their doorstep, will they be able to work together to win the day? This warm and quirky comedy is a family-friendly, winning romp.
