The Sunol Repertory
Presents its 2014-- 33rd Season Production of
Hotel Escargot By Andrew Ross
Directed by Klay Kunkel & Diane Tiessen
Welcome to the French Riviera, where the annual Kantz France International Film Festival is about to take place. A hodgepodge of people come together at the elegant Hotel Escargot — a wretched hotel owner Wynona Elmsley, her downtrodden staff, a couple of bumbling jewel thieves hoping to profit from the wealthy guests, an inept reporter from the Hollywood Celebrity Network, directors, producers, actors, investors and movie fans from all over the world. As the reporter interviews world renowned film directors, we see “film clips” of their movies which are... well... let’s just say “artsy.” Meanwhile, an American producer who doesn’t seem to care for originality, pitches Alamo II to investor and Texas oil man Ricky Joe Derrick. In this sequel the Texans win! Don’t like it? How about making another best-loved film of all time "Gone with the Wind II”! Add a clueless police inspector, members of a royal family and Wynona trying to figure out which of her guests is really a reporter doing a write-up for the Elegant Hotels magazine, and we have one crazy time on the Riviera!

The Sunol Repertory Theatre was
founded in 1982 by Tom and Vicki Harland to provide quality
entertainment, establish a community tradition, and create
an opportunity to raise funds to benefit the educational
of the students at Sunol Glen School, which receives the profit
from each year's show. After the 2011 season, the Sunol
Theatre donated $7000. Over its 25 year history, SRT has donated
over $100,000 to the School.
