Alton Little Theater is putting on some cowboy boots and kicking up dust and big laughs with the 86th season opener “Happily Ever After- A Wedding Comedy” by up and coming playwright Mark Dunn and directed by Kevin Frakes. This show is not recommended for children under 13.
It's moments before her wedding, and Francie has barricaded herself inside the church nursery, convinced that she's destined for a fairy-tale ending with another man...if he ever wakes up from his coma. Her mother's determined to make loyal fiancé Kyle her son-in-law by any means necessary, but a dog funeral's scheduled for 4:30, the caterer's making eyes at the minister, and the whole town's in a frenzy over a presidential visit -- and that's before Francie's sleeping beauty makes a miraculous recovery. This family-friendly farce has a Texas twang and plot twists aplenty in the tradition of classic Kaufman and Hart.
