The Riverbend Players are at it again! Preparations are underway for the next production: “Four Weddings and an Elvis” a hilarious romantic comedy due to open on March 15. This rollicking show features a not-so-lucky-in-love wedding chapel owner in Las Vegas, and four of the most memorable weddings in her chapel. Written by Nancy Frick and directed by Jeff Slamal, “Four Weddings and an Elvis” is a must see … guaranteed to make you laugh!
Sandy (played by Sedona Torres), the four-times-married-three-times-divorced owner of a wedding chapel in Las Vegas, has certainly seen her fair share of matrimonies! In this production, we witness four of her funniest weddings: Bev (Patty Reksten) and Stan (Tom Cocklin), who are getting married by John, an Elvis impersonator (Michael Dinan) — the King himself –- as revenge on their exes; Vanessa (Linda Makohon) and Bryce (Dave Bell), two arrogant aging stars who are tying the knot as a publicity ploy, and are vexed by Lou, an aging Elvis, who doesn’t know who they are; and Marvin (Patrick Dennis) and Fiona (Margo McClellan) a gentle postal-worker and a tough ex-con trying to get married before the police arrive. Adding to the excitement, Fiona’s rough ex-boyfriend “Fist” (Mike Sims) tries to break up their romance at the last minute! Saving the best till last, the final wedding is the funniest of all, revealing a hilarious twist!
