Ollie’s Day Out has found it’s legs in actor Arthur Goodman

OLLIE Keeps Going!

Actor Arthur Goodman, who played the role of OLLIE BROWNSTONE in The Dangerous Theater’s production of Ollie’s Day Out recently, likes the play so much he’s touring it to the “over 55” communities in his Denver area.  So – to the delight of his contemporaries – our OLLIE, spindly 84 year old legs, pee stains and all, continues to teach that younger man PAUL a thing or two about talking to a blonde in a bar!   And Actor Arthur Goodman seems to relish the job.  Arthur reports that the play has been “greeted with enthusiasm”.   And he plans to keep performing it.

With 3 actors and one minimal set, Ollie’s Day Out, is a breeze to travel – with a role any elderly thespian with an urge to perform can chew their way through.  Plus, you get to woo a lovely young woman every evening and drink!  If you’re an elderly actor who’s still able to hobble up onto the stage – and hasn’t kicked the urge – this could be the play vehicle for you.  Just contact our office here at Seattle Celebrity News! for script rental and arrangements.  Our secretary is standing (well, sitting, kind of…) by.

Eager to take your calls!

Ollie’s Day Out

Written by Carl Nelson

Directed by Patricial Goodman

Featuring the talents of Art Goodman, Hannah Richards & Ben Telayo

 

Are you ever too old to appreciate the beauty of a young woman? Ollie doesn’t think so. At the age of 84 he seeks out beauty wherever he can. He finds Niki alone and not so patiently waiting for her boyfriend in a hotel bar. By the time Paul shows up Ollie has fallen in love with Niki. She has grown fond of Ollie and is not about to let Paul off the hook so easily for being late.

OLLIE’S DAY OUT

OLLIE at the Bar.

OLLIE, 84, awakes one day to find his shoes wrapped and waiting under the Christmas tree.  He takes this as a ‘suggestion’, and wandering away from his assisted care facility finds himself in Fitzgeralds, an upscale hotel bar.  He immediately takes a shine to NIKI, who is waiting there for her boyfriend, PAUL to show.  Love struck, OLLIE decides to try and woo her. 

 While talking with OLLIE, NIKI lets it drop that she is pregnant.  OLLIE offers to marry her.  PAUL, the father, who arrives late, is hesitant to get married.  OLLIE’s ardor and commitment battle with PAUL’s youth and hesitance for the heart of NIKI.
