Please plan to join us even if you have never been on stage before. We love having fun, laughing, meeting new people, and sharing the ‘theatre’ experience. Hope to see you there.

Wedding Bell Blues is a melodrama set in Lizard, Nevada in the 1960’s. The heroine of the piece is Crystal Ball, the owner of the local bridal shop, Enchanted Garden. We have villains, Slip Shod and Mrs. Sippi. Slip owns the bank and Mrs. wants to rise to the top of Lizard society no matter what it takes. Her daughter, Missy Sippi, is always a bridesmaid and never a bride. Our innocent bride-to-be is Paisley Tye and her betrothed is Brighton Early. Locals include Rainbow Trout, Lucky Chance, Adam Zapple, and Howie Doohan
