Directors Theresa Stenger and Jay Ingle are looking for six (6) women:

1-KARI AMES-BISSETTE – late20s, kind hearted, spirited southern charmer, who in the end finds her man in an unlikely encounter
2-LIBBY RUTH AMES – late 40s, hopeless romantic with the perfect marriage, sweet country woman, plain spoken and guileless
3-MONETTE GENTRY – late 40s kinda flashy, kinda trashy, Southern-to-the-bone flirt who has made multiple trips down the aisle
4-CHARLIE COLLINS – late 40s, tree hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, not sure marriage is for her, acerbic Southern free spirit
5-DEEDRA WINGATE – late 40s, headstrong with a dry wit, no-nonsense Northern transplant whose marriage hangs by a thread
6-SEDALIA ELLICOTT – 60S, a gregarious, energetic, Virginia hostess and life force
Please brush up on your southern accent; everyone but Deedra has some degree of southern accent.
SYNOPSIS – The play takes place upstairs sitting room at historic Laurelton Oaks Manor  in Laurelton, Virginia. The play takes place over a period of 7 years.
Four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom to be in each others weddings……NO MATTER WHAT. More than 30 years later these southern friends-for-life are still making “the long walk” for each other, determined to honor that vow.  ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID answers the “Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend”.
If you have ever elbowed a stranger to catch the bouquet, seriously questioned the mental state of the two saying “I Do”, or been forced to wear the worlds ugliest bridesmaid dress.  This JONES HOPE WOOTEN COMEDY is for you…….and your dearly beloved.

Rehearsals start Monday March 6th at 7 PM. We will rehearse Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and some possible Saturdays as needed.
SHOW DATES are 18th to the 30th (8 performances)
