The Christendom College Players will put on a production of the family comedy, Father of the Bride, on November 20-22, at Warren County Middle School in Front Royal, Va.
Father of the Bride follows a husband and wife who discover that their daughter has become engaged. The announcement turns their whole world upside down as the parents humorously come to grips with the shift of their daughter into adulthood.“Father of the Bride is a very accessible, and relatable, production. It’s centered on a family, so many of the humorous conversations within the play itself will sound familiar to many in the audience. We believe this will make it one of the most enjoyable productions in our history,” said alumnus Andrew Clark, who’s helping direct the play after the success of his directing debut of And Then There Were Nonelast spring.
“We have such an energetic, young, talented cast. They have a drive and a hunger for excellence on stage, which has made this play incredibly joyful to work on,” said Clark. “The staff behind the scenes is just as strong. Myself, and the other directors, are veterans of the Christendom Players, led by the always incredible mentorship of Dr. Patrick Keats.”
Father of the Bride will be performed four times over the course of the weekend, playing at 8:00 pm on November 20 and November 21, and at 3:00 pm and 8:00 pm on Sunday. Admission is $8 per adult, $3 per child (12 and under), and $5 for Christendom students.
Every year, the Christendom Players produce two plays, one in the fall and one in the spring. While Christendom does not have a drama department, students from across all disciplines are welcome to audition for the performances, making Christendom’s liberal arts experience rich in the fine arts as well.
