When Stanley Banks' 21 year old daughter Kay surprises him with the news that she's getting married, Stanley discovers that he's not quite ready to be Father of the Bride. As the guest list grows larger each day, and the costs spiral out of control with the addition of florists, furniture movers, dressmakers and more, the Banks household becomes a scene of matrimonial mayhem. Originally written as a novel in 1949 and adapted for the stage by Caroline Francke in 1951, this beloved and timeless tale has been seen on the big screen multiple times (once with Spencer Tracy as the titular father and later starring Steve Martin), and now you can enjoy this funny and touching play live on the stage of the Oil Lamp Theater. Don't be surprised if there's a bouquet toss, and be sure to leave some room for the wedding cake that will be served at each performance!
Oil Lamp Theater is a BYOB theater.
