The Waimea Community Theatre’s “Four Weddings and an Elvis” is May 17-26, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 3 p.m. at Parker School Theatre in Waimea.
At Sandy’s Las Vegas Wedding Chapel, Sandy struggles with wedding misfits, erratic Elvis impersonators, serial marriages and a host of problems while attempting to provide cheerful, convenient matrimony on the fly.
Andy Kunellis plays Sandy, master of wedding ceremonies. Prospective brides include washed up TV star Vanessa, played by Anjalisa Aitken, ambivalent matrimonial aspirant Bev played by Susie Henneke, and tattooed ex-con Fiona played by Jada Rufo.
Grooms-to-be include Stan, jilted divorcee, played by director B. Lee Drew, Bryce fading Hollywood personality, by John Sucke, and Marvin, a cheerful postal worker hoping to capture the woman of his dreams, is played by Ricky Delorey II.
Added to the mix are aspiring Elvis impersonator Lou, played by Bill Cruise, John, a younger Elvis rival, played by Dylan Brennan, Fist, prison escapee hoping to retrieve his ex-girlfriend (Victor Pangan) and a TV director, played by Arlene Araki and Jean Hendrix, alternating.
In spite of, or perhaps because of, their bizarre motivations, the characters find unexpected resolutions through the machinations of Sandy’s Wedding Chapel.
Tickets are $10-$15, and available from cast members, Waimea General Store and Without Boundaries in Waimea, Suite Possibilities in Kailua-Kona or the box office before each show.
