MHS to present ?Father of the Bride? this weekend

Marion High School is presenting, ?Father of the Bride,? at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the school?s Performing Arts Center.

The play was postponed earlier in the month due to state basketball, said Janet Killough, forensics and creative writing instructor.

More than 45 students will take part in the production, she said, to include those performing or working behind the scenes in lighting, makeup or costumes.

?Father of the Bride? is a comedy set in the 1950s.

The play involves a family with the daughter announcing plans to marry.

?There?s a surprise ending,? Killough said, ?so we don?t want to give away too much.?

To find out what that ending will be, everyone is invited to attend with tickets $3 for adults and $2 for children.

Cast members include Alex Eurit as Mr. Banks; Sarah Guetersloh as Mrs. Banks; Caroline Collette as Kay Banks; Tim Costello as Ben Banks and Ryan Nelson as Tommy Banks.

Other actors are Isaac Baldwin playing Buckley Dustan; Derek Stuchlik as Buzz Taylor; Brooke Johnson as Peggy Swift; JayDee Schafers as Miss Bellamy; Madison Chamberland as Deliah and Michael Kirkpatrick as Mr. Massoula.

Also included are E.J. Obermeyer as Wolf; Dylan Goebel as Joe; Monica Spachek as Mrs. Pulitzki; Spencer Fugitt as Red; Colin Eurit as Pete; florists are Jennifer Freuechting and Sarah Eurit and assistants are Angel Funk and Bethany Maddox.
