Jewel Box Theater kicks off wedding season with a comedy

Kicking off the summer season with a laugh, the Jewel Box Theater presents “Always A Bridesmaid,” a comedic play by Jones Hope Wooten.

The production follows the story of four friends, Libby Ruth, Deedra, Monette and Charlie, making good on the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other’s weddings…no matter what!

Libby Ruth, a self described hopeless romantic with a “perfect marriage” is convinced that her friends will find their happily ever after.

Headstrong Deedra’s “rock-solid” union hangs by a thread when she discovers her husband of many years has a wandering eye.

Monette, a flashy, high-spirited and self-involved woman, continues to test her friends’ love and patience with all too-frequent trips down the aisle.

Charlie, a tree-hugging meets salt-of-the-earth type, discovers — the hard way — that marital bliss is not the end of her rainbow.

Throughout the show, these women find they are committed to the notion that careers, waistlines and even marriages may disappear, but real friendships last a lifetime.

Audiences can join in this journey with these beleaguered bridesmaids as they navigate the choppy waters of love and matrimony June 14 through June 30.

The play is Jeffrey Bassett’s directorial debut.

Bassett has been in several plays and musicals on the Jewel Box Stage including “The Sunshine Boys” and “9 to 5: The Musical.”

Tickets are $17 for adults, $15 seniors/students/military, and may be purchased online at or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006.

Audience members 21 and over that arrive early can enjoy and a glass of wine or a bottle of beer for $5.
