Grooms-to-be Josh and Brent are having the happiest day of their lives -- at least, they are supposed to be having the happiest day of their lives. The civil, respectable ceremony they have planned turns topsy-turvy when a crazy cast of loving friends and family are thrown into the mix. In the tradition of interactive classics like Tony n' Tina's Wedding, you're invited to attend the ceremony and join the newlyweds at their reception, where the family's hijinks will make you roar with laughter. Come and join in on a hilarious evening of dancing, singing and love. Learn More

Mr. Stauffer's enthusiasm and energy drive the piece, but Ms. Chambers' empathy and earnestness make it special. Most of the actors in these absurd situations give one-note, sketch-worthy caricatured performances (in all fairness, that is what usually suits the material). Even when she is not speaking there is so much going on behind her eyes you cannot help but care about what her character is after. Her character is the only one that feels like a real person.
The plays are smart, engaging, and comedic, but not laugh-out-loud funny. The whole show moves well and is never boring. Cast members do a fine job of running interference while others redress the stage for the next piece.
