Always a Bridesmaid

Navigates the choppy waters of Love and Matrimony

Metro Theatre is delighted to present Always a Bridesmaid, a Jones Hope Wooten comedy directed by Don Briard, playing January 17 to February 1, 2020.

Committed to the notion that careers, waistlines, and even marriages may disappear, but real friendships last a lifetime, four high school girlfriends honour the vow they made to each other at their dateless prom: no matter where, no matter when, they would all show up to stand as bridesmaids when one of them got married.  Forsaking all others, in sickness and in health, they repeatedly struggle to stage the perfect wedding in spite of fistfights at the altar, runaway brides or the mistaken and unfortunate release of a flock of white doves.

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 … and your dearly beloved!
Always a Bridesmaid demonstrates that good friends are a family we choose; and they are bound to us with a loyalty which is voluntary rather than a requirement of birth. The bridesmaids prove that the more important the event, the more likely the unexpected will come to pass.” - Don Briard, Director

ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID is written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten, directed by Don Briard, stage managed by Al Zylstra and produced by Joan Koebel   Photo credits to Tracy-Lynn Chernaske.
