Always A Bridesmaid
April 16, 2016
Friendship is a wonderful thing. Whether it be a friend you've grown up with or someone you've become close to as an adult, they are still a blessing. Being a part of Market House I've had the opportunity to make new friends that I consider part of my extended family. Luckily none of them have asked me to make repeat performances at their weddings.
Working with these ladies has been a wonderful experience. Some I've shared the stage with before and others I'm blessed with getting to know them. I've always wanted to work with Diane (Byrd) as a director, and I've learned a lot from her. No matter how many times I do these things, I find there's always room for improvement. Creating a character is usually easy for me, but playing Deedra has been somewhat of a challenge. It's hard to give a hardnosed judge a soft side without losing her very well-earned dignity.
I'm always grateful when I get the opportunity to be cast in any show. Whether it be a comedy, drama or musical, I find there is always a challenge, but, like any actor, we strive to build a character that someone out there can relate to.
Always a Bridesmaid is a story about four ladies who've been there for all of each others matrimonial ups and downs. They vowed they would be bridesmaids for each friends wedding, and apparently that vow included an added clause stating there was no limit on how many times any of them chose to get married.
Come check out this lovely story about these crazy ladies that do whatever it takes to fulfill a promise they made back in high school. You'll laugh, you'll cry - heck you might even pee yourself a little.
