TONY AND TINA WANT YOU TO COME TO THEIR WEDDING
You're invited to a wedding and you don't have to rent a tuxedo or get your ball gown out of mothballs. All you have to do is show up on time, with a healthy appetite, decide if you want to sit on the bride or the groom's side of the hall, and be prepared to party hearty. Gifts are optional and you can bring orange blossoms or pink rose petals to scatter if the spirit moves you.
Join Seven Angels Theatre in Waterbury as they celebrate "Tony 'n Tina's Wedding" not once, not twice, but three times, until they get it right. The cocktail reception will be starting promptly at 6:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, September 20 and 21 and again at 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 22. Surely you're available to partake in the festivities at least once. This special fundraiser for the theatre will take place at Chase Collegiate School, 565 Chase Parkway, Waterbury.
Plan to join Tony and Tina as they exchange vows in a less-than-solemn occasion where you, as good friends and family, get to participate in the celebration. The intended bride and groom have been getting hitched thousands of times Off-Broadway and now it's your turn to toast them with a glass or three of the bubbly.
Maybe your family is sedate and sophisticated but these two clans are anything but. Expect fireworks and major embaressments as Father Mark prepares to officiate at the union. His job is made more difficult and devilish with the help of the sarcastic maid of honor Connie, a flirting brother of the groom Johnny, a controlling mother of the bride Josephina who wants everything her way, a crazy matchmaking matron on Tony's side, his Grandma Nunzio, as well as bridesmaids, cousins, the photographer, caterer and best man. All the usual suspects will be there and they all want to have a say in the proceedings. Grab your dance card and your partner so you don't miss out on the fun.
For tickets ($45 subscribers, $50 non-subscribers), call 203-757-4676 or online at www.sevenangelstheatre.org. Corporate tables of 10 are available for $750. The tickets include the ceremony, reception, Italian baked ziti dinner, champagne toast, wedding cake, music, dancing and much more. A cash bar will be open.
Tony and Tina have been getting married for 25 years. It's about time you were invited to help them say "I do."
