Perfect Wedding

A Comedy of Tiered Proportions

July 19 to August 27, 2023

By Robin Hawdon

Take a walk down the aisle and say “I DO!” to a bridal suite spectacle that is equal parts riotous comedy and touching love story.

A bridegroom wakes up in his bridal suite with a hangover on the morning he’s about to be married, and turns to the woman in bed beside him . . . and has no recollection of her at all. But he does recall that his fiancée is about to arrive at any moment!  

During the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed and out of the way, the bride arrives, the woman is trapped in the bathroom, and the best man gets pressed into action – at considerable risk to his own happiness. By the time the bride’s mother gets in on the act, the chaos reaches hysterical (and hilarious) proportions, making the big day far from a piece of cake!

Running Time: 2 hours including a 20 minute intermission.

Audience Recommendation: Contains mature themes and language. Recommended for ages 13 and up.

Our table loved it. The chambermaid was super.
Diane W, Formosa
A fast-paced, hilarious comedy with never a dull moment. The whole cast was so talented but we really felt that that the person who played the Chambermaid character stole the show.

The director and casting director should have been called to the stage for strong accolades. So supremely was this show cast and directed it seemed the whole event was real. Oscar for the Chambermaid. Every detail was perfect. A fantastic cast and we assume crew to keep it so fresh. Fab entertainment and enjoyment.

Gary S, Sarnia
What a wonderful performance last night by very gifted actors Justin Bott, Tyler Check, Gabi Epstein, Rebecca Gibian, Mary Harvey, Emma Rudy!!! The fast paced comedy played between 2 rooms where actors had to move quickly back and forth was amazing and elicited constant laughter from us, the enthusiastic audience. All characters were well defined and so well portrayed that there was not a boring moment! I fully understand why there are almost no seats left through August as word of mouth spreads about the outstanding quality of the acting cast. No doubt the creative team with Wade Lynch as director has made an essential contribution to making this performance unique.
Louise B, Waterloo
The Perfect Wedding was fast-paced comedy that was almost slapstick at times. The plot was interesting and witty. The actors timing was impeccable. The actors really matched their roles. A wonderful show! The small venue made you feel a part of the show.
