‘Always a Bridesmaid’ just getting started

While the soup is simmering, I can tell you about our upcoming adult comedy play, “Always a Bridesmaid,” which will be presented April 26-28 and May 3-5 at the Mielke Arts Center in Shawano. Director will be Miriam Nelson, assisted by Early Fuller.

Auditions were held on Feb. 8-9 for the roles of the bride and bridesmaids. However, we don’t always fill roles at the auditions, so feel free to call me at 715-201-1299, and I will pass on your inquiry to Miriam. An additional audition is usually possible.

As with every production, there’s always a need for people to help with costumes, props, ushers, backstage manager, publicity, etc. We have a job for you, so call me.

To view a script for an audition, go online and Google “Always a Bridesmaid” and click on stage play. Authors are Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten. The story is about girlfriends who made a promise to each other that they will be in each other’s wedding party, no matter what. The play begins with them preparing for one of the ladies’ third wedding, and the event has lost some of its luster.

Obviously, this play is a comedy, but there are some meaningful girlfriend moments, too. The humor is appropriate for most everyone, especially women. Take a peek at the script and decide for yourself. Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for youth, available at the Shawano Country Chamber of Commerce, online at brownpapertickets.com, our ticket line at 715-526-2525 or at the door.

See you at the theater.
