About the Show:
In this hilarious comedic romp, four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other’s weddings…no matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making “the long walk” for each other, determined to honor that vow. Hop on this marriage-go-round for a laugh-out-loud journey with these beleaguered bridesmaids as they navigate the choppy waters of love and matrimony. If you’ve ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride’s bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of the duo saying “I do” or been forced to wear the world’s ugliest bridesmaid dress, this deliriously funny comedy is definitely for you..

Available Roles:
6 Women

KARI (20's): kind-hearted, spirited Southern charmer
LIBBY RUTH (30's to 50's): hopeless romantic; sweet country woman, plain spoken and guileless; Kari’s mother

MONETTE (30's to 50's): kinda flashy, kinda trashy; Southern-to-the-bone flirt
CHARLIE (30's to 50's): tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, acerbic Southern free spirit
DEEDRA (30's to 50's): headstrong with a dry wit; no-nonsense Judge; Northern transplant
