The Grove Theatre Presents FATHER OF THE BRIDE, Through 6/27
The Grove Theatre cordially invites you to "The Father of the Bride," a play about all the chaos and comedy of a family planning their eldest daughter's wedding.
Opening of Father of the Bride on Friday night, June 11th at 7:29 pm, Father of the Bride runs on weekends through June 27th. Mr. Banks learns that one of the young men he has seen occasionally about the house is about to become his son-in-law. Daughter Kay announces the engagement out of nowhere. Mrs. Banks and her sons are happy, but Mr. Banks is in a dither. The groom-to-be, Buckley Dunstan, appears on the scene and Mr. Banks realizes that the engagement is serious. Buckley and Kay don't want a "big" wedding-just a simple affair with a few friends! When the "small family wedding" threatens to grow huge and then spirals out of control, the father of the bride is at the center of the chaos when trouble really begins. The guest list grows larger each day, a caterer is called in, florists, furniture movers and dressmakers take over, and the Banks household is soon caught in turmoil-not to mention growing debt. When Kay, in a fit of temper, calls off the wedding, everyone's patience snaps. But all is set right, and the wedding (despite more last-minute crises) comes off beautifully. In the end, the father of the bride is a happy, proud man, glad that the wedding is over, but knowing too that it was worth all the money and aggravation to start his daughter off so handsomely on the road to married life.
