Footlights Productions’ 2017-18 season continues with the comedy “Four Weddings and an Elvis” by Nancy Frick. Michelle Badgely makes her Footlights Productions debut, starring as Sandy, the owner of “Sandy’s Chapel of Love” – a small Las Vegas wedding chapel that plays host to some very outlandish nuptials. Sandy is four-times-married-three-times-divorced, and has certainly seen her fair share of matrimonies!
In the hilarious “Four Weddings and an Elvis,” we witness four of her funniest: Bev and Stan, who are getting married – by the King himself! – as revenge on their exes; Vanessa and Bryce, two arrogant aging stars who are tying the knot as a publicity ploy, who are vexed by an aging Elvis who doesn’t know who they are; and Martin and Fiona, a gentle postal-worker and a tough ex-con trying to get married before the police arrive! However, the final wedding is the funniest of all: Sandy’s fifth and final wedding which reveals a hilarious twist! With snappy dialogue and memorable characters, “Four Weddings and an Elvis” is a comedic treat (with adult content)!
The play is directed by Tracy Walker, stage managed by James Fisher, and costumed by De Wayne Kirchner. The play runs February 16-18 and 23-25, 2018, in the Modern Studio, 109 W. Anderson Avenue in Knoxville.
