A raucous finale to the 2017-18 season,
PERFECT WEDDING by Robin Hawdon
THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO - May 5, 2018 (LSN) Magnus Theatre is happy to present a raucous finale to the 2017-18 season, PERFECT WEDDING by Robin Hawdon.
Two hours before his wedding, a bridegroom wakes up beside a woman he doesn’t recognize. Chaos ensues with the arrival of the best man, the bride, a meddling chambermaid and finally the mother of the bride. The madness reaches a fevered pitch as the groom desperately tries to remember the night before and explain himself to everyone in the hotel, making for a side-splitting night at the theatre.
It is a non-stop hilarious ride of unbridled proportions! “This is an uproarious story of a young man who is desperately trying to keep control of an out of control situation,” says Magnus Theatre Artistic Director Thom Currie. “It is a classic farce with classic farce situations.”
PERFECT WEDDING features an array of talent from across Canada. Returning to the Magnus stage are Kate Madden (Of Human Bondage) as the Bride and local favourite Jo-Ann Waytowich (star of the Ivanka comedy series) as her mother. Making their first appearance at Thunder Bay’s only professional theatre are Jesse Nerenberg as the flustered groom and Tom Finn as his beleaguered best man with Samantha Piper and Jennifer Dzialoszynski rounding out the cast. Guaranteed to make you laugh until your sides hurt, PERFECT WEDDING is the perfect ending to a stellar season of professional theatre in Northwestern Ontario, directed by Thom Currie, with set design by Doug Robinson and lighting design by Kirsten Watt.
PERFECT WEDDING opens Friday May 4th and runs through Saturday, May 19th.
