DOUBLE SPRINGS - You are cordially invited to the social clash of the decade as Ms. Delainie, a big city wedding planner, has been hired to direct a simple wedding ceremony for two of Lickskillet’s favorite lovebirds, Margaret and Virgil.
The morning of the wedding is a coordinator’s nightmare. It begins with a skittish bride who thinks she’s promised her love to the wrong man (her mama told her to marry “Mr. Right”) and relatives refuse to cooperate with the fancy city lady’s ideas.
This delightful musical comedy, “Virgil’s Wedding”, is the latest theatrical production from the Free State Theater Troupe, now presenting its sixth full-length stage play. The Winston County Arts Council sponsors this young group of actors who attend schools throughout the county.
The play’s director, Beth Gilbreath, claims it to be “supremely entertaining.” Hunter Miller, an actor from Addison High School, says “I love this play, the role, the people and every memory I’ve made during this experience. I wouldn’t trade it for the world!”
Performances will be held at Double Springs Middle School on Friday, February 25 at 7 p.m., with matinees on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 26-27 at 2 p.m. each day. Tickets are available at the door for $6 for adults and $3 for students. No presents or RSVPs are necessary; just come to the wedding and be glad it’s not yours!
