Sylvia Goldberg, a respectable retired New Jersey school teacher, brings home more than just souvenirs upon returning from her grandson’s wedding in Israel in Actors Circle “Seniors of the Sahara.” In the romantic comedy by Barbara Pease Weber and directed by Art Walsh, Sylvie’s troubles begin when she realizes that the old teapot she purchased at an outdoor market is actually a priceless relic containing a geriatric genie “Eugene” with a bad back and a penchant for vodka and V8.

Keeping Eugene a secret from her three best friends, Mabel, Thelma and Fannie, proves to be nearly as difficult as protecting herself from Eugene’s former master who follows Sylvie home and threatens her at knife point.

The cast includes George Cosmetis, Jeff Ginsberg, Lorrie Loughney, Betsy Seaforth, Casey Thomas, Cathy Rist Strauch, and Regina Yeager.
