By Nancy FrickDirected by Pat GosnellLet’s take a trip to Las Vegas where Sandy, four-times-married-three-times-divorced owns a wedding chapel. In this hilarious, heart-warming comedy, we witness some of her most memorable clients. Bev and Stan are getting married as revenge on their exes. Vanessa and Bryce, two aging stars, are tying the knot as a publicity ploy, and Martin and Fiona, a gentle postal-worker and a tough ex-con are in love. Most touching is Sandy’s fifth and final wedding - to the love of her life. These memorable characters, and an Elvis, make this a comedic treat not to be missed.Performances: September 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 2021Auditions: Sunday June 27 at 6:00 & Monday June 28 at 6:00PuffsBy Matt CoxDirected by Aaron FletcherForsevenyears,acertainboywizardwenttoacertainWizardSchooland conqueredevil.This,however,isnothisstory.Thisisthestoryofthe Puffs...Puffswhojusthappenedtobetheretoo.
