Mark your calendars! This weekend is WWU's last mainstage show of the year, a hilarious production titled "Perfect Wedding." This show holds a special place in my heart - partly because it's absolutely ridiculous and I love funny shows, but mainly because this is the last mainstage play of my college career. (Wait, what?!)
"An appalling situation. A bridegroom wakes on his wedding morning in his own bridal suite, with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment, and finds a strange girl in bed beside him. Worse -... during the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed and out of the way, the bride arrives and the girl is trapped in the bathroom. The only way out of the dilemma is to persuade the best man to pretend that the hidden girl is his girl-friend. Then the problem is that the best man’s real girl-friend has to be kept ignorant of the fact. By the time the bride's parents and half the hotel staff get in on the act, the chaos reaches nuclear proportions!" (Plot taken from the event Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1426261357625036/)
Performance dates are Thurs-Sat, April 24-26 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, April 27th at 2:00 pm in Cutlip Auditorium (also commonly known as "the Dome"). Ticket prices are as follows: Adults - $12, Seniors - $10, Faculty/Staff - $8, Students - $7, and Children ages 6-12 - $6. You can buy tickets at the door, order them online at www.showtix4u.com, or you can call the box office at (573) 592-4267.
WWU students: this is a 2 point LEAD event!
The show features a broad range of talent. I will be joined onstage by Jen Steindorf (senior), Kelly Kottemann (senior), T.J. Green (junior), Zachary Likens (freshman), and Bethany Elliot (high school junior). The interpreters (see below) are Maggie Hunter (senior) and Darian Lightfoot (senior).
This is going to be a great show. Thursday and Friday nights, the cast will be joined onstage by two shadow interpreters, so you'll get to see the show both in English and American Sign Language if you come on those nights. I hope to see each every one of you there!
