We are holding auditions a week from today at the VBC Playhouse for our production of Always A Bridesmaid! Roles available for six women between the ages of 20 to 60. Come out and play with us!
Always a Bridesmaid
Written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten
Presented by THEATRE HUNTSVILLE
Directed by John Hancock
In this comedic romp, four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other’s weddings, no matter what. Years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making “the long walk” for each other, determined to honor that vow. These four loyal and determined women definitely answer the question “Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend?” Is this deliriously funny Jones Hope Wooten comedy for you?

Libby Ruth Ames (mid-late 40s) – A kind-hearted, spirited Southern charmer. Libby Ruth is the hopeful romantic with the perfect marriage who believes—in spite of all evidence to the contrary—that her friends can find the very same happiness. She is Kari’s mother.
Monette Gentry (mid-late 40s) – A kinda flashy, kinda trashy Southern-to-the-bone flirt. Monette, high-spirited and self-involved, continues to test her friends’ love and patience with all-too-frequent trips down the aisle.
Charlie Collins (mid-late 40s) – A tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, acerbic Southern free spirit. Salt-of-the-earth Charlie discovers—the hard way—that marital bliss is not the end of her rainbow, and panics in outrageous style when the opportunity presents itself.
Deedra Wingate (mid-late 40s) – A headstrong, no-nonsense Northern transplant with a dry wit. Deedra’s “rock-solid” union hangs by a thread when she discovers her husband of many years not only has a wandering eye, but the hands to match.
Kari Ames-Bissette (mid-late 20s) – A kind-hearted but spirited Southern charmer. Kari is Libby Ruth’s daughter and spends most of the play addressing her wedding guests and relatives… becoming increasingly inebriated in the process.
Sedalia Endicott (late 50s-60s) – A gregarious, energetic Virginia hostess and life-force. Sedalia is the owner of the Laurelton Oaks and drill-sergeant-like orchestrator of its weddings. She’s “never lost a bride,” and is quite proud of that reputation.
