"Always A Bridesmaid" relays the comedic tale of four friends who have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their senior prom to be in each other’s weddings no matter what.
More than 30 years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still determined to honor that vow.
Libby Ruth Ames, played by Tammy Simmons, is a hopeful romantic with the perfect marriage who believes - in spite of all evidence to the contrary - that her friends can find the very same happiness.
Played by Karen Meadors, Deedra Wingate’s is a headstrong woman whose "rock-solid" union hangs by a thread when she discovers her husband of many years has not only a wandering eye but the hands to match.
Monette Gentry, played by Joellen Moore, is flashy, high-spirited and self-involved and continues to test her friends’ love and patience with all-too-frequent trips down the aisle.
Salt-of-the-earth, tree-hugging Charlie Collins, played by Leah James, discovers the hard way that marital bliss is not the end of her rainbow and panics in outrageous style when the opportunity presents itself.
These four friends repeatedly struggle to stage the perfect wedding in spite of fistfights at the altar, runaway brides and the mistaken, and unfortunate, release of a flock of white doves on the first day of hunting season.
Other performers are Haylee Nigh as Kari Ames-Bissette, and Dawn Beaver as Sedalia Ellicott. The play is directed by Marla Walker and was written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten.
