TONY & TINA'S WEDDING--Audience Participation Play with a Meal & Wedding Reception--Returns to LC this Fall.

We are lucky to have been granted a license to perform TONY N' TINA'S WEDDING this fall.  The event begins with the side-splitting ceremony where anything can happen (and usually does!).  As a show that is improvisationally heavy, the audience really plays a role in the direction of each evening's four performances.  A favorite performed in 2001 at LC, this audience participation event is back by popular demand!

After the ceremony, it’s time for the most hilarious wedding reception you’ll ever attend! You’ll enjoy a full Italian meal, throw rice, raise a glass for a cider toast, eat the wedding cake and dance the night away at the party you and your friends will be laughing about for years to come. The show stars "Tina," the headstrong 20-something party girl bride with an attitude – and "Tony," the rowdy, handsome, yet charming groom-to-be. Other hilarious characters emerge from this quirky cast, which includes an entire wedding party of guests ranging from "Connie," the pregnant maid of honor, to "Father Mark," a priest who thinks he's hip. As the evening unfolds, the only guarantee is that there will be plenty of drama all around.

So, save a date for this production that's guaranteed to tickle your funny bone, fill your stomachs and get your feet moving in the dance.  The show plays Friday, October 29 and Saturday, Ocotber 30, Friday November 13 & Saturday November 14.

Auditions begin this week!  There will be a general/informational meeting on Thursday, September 2, 2010 at 3:00 PM in the LCHS Drama Room.  There will also be an informational meeting at 3:00 on Tuesday, September 7, 2010 at 3:00 PM in the LCHS Drama Room and a meeting on Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at 6:50 AM.  Students need to attend ONLY ONE informational meeting.  Auditions will be held after school September 7 & 8.
So, come join Tony & Tina and their family and friends, and see for yourself why theirs is still the most talked about wedding in town - rated the second longest running Off Broadway show in theater history, the #1 Dinner Show in the world, and the show the New York Times calls

"Audaciously imaginative!"
