Costa Mesa, CA, June 24, 2015 – Vanguard University’s professional theatre company in residence, the American Coast Theater Company, presents Always a Bridesmaid. The production is presented in the Lyceum Theater on the Vanguard University campus, beginning July 10, 2015 and running three weekendsthrough July 26, 2015.
The show’s director, Kevin Slay, is excited about presenting Always a Bridesmaid for the first time in the Southern California area. He adds, “Always a Bridesmaid is a fun, laugh-out-loud play. It’s a terrific story about the strength and bonds of friendship through the years, and what we are willing to do in support of our friends during the special occasions that come with life! If you enjoyed television comedies like Golden Girls or Designing Women, then you won’t want to miss these ladies and this play!”
Always a Bridesmaid was co-written by one of the writers and producers of the hit television show, The Golden Girls, and features the acting talents of Susan Berkompas, Maria Cominis, Vanda Eggington, Deborah Marley, Ashley Olson, Heaven Peabody and Amanda Zarr.
Always a Bridesmaid is the rollicking tale of four loyal and determined women who definitively answer the question, “Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend?” If you have ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride’s bouquet, or seriously questioned the mental stability of the duo saying “I do,” or been forced to wear the world’s ugliest bridesmaid dress, then this deliriously funny comedy is definitely for you… and your dearly beloved!
