There’s gonna be a wedding at LampLight Theatre. The Foggy Valley Gang is sending out an open invitation for you to come to this uproarious matrimonial ceremony. The Goodin Family will be marrying off their naive youngest daughter, Ura Goodin, to her prospective dim-witted husband, Clovis Bodine. This new mirthful slapstick comedy will premiere in August at LampLight Theatre on Broad Street in Kingsport, TN. The oblivious young couple must overcome some major obstacles (including Mama Goodin) in order to find marital bliss. After meeting both sides of the family, they will quickly come to understand what it means to vow, “For Better or Worse.”
Ingenuous Clovis has to muster the nerve to ask the father-of-the-bride, Spoolie Goodin, for Ura’s hand in marriage. The Reverend Clyde T. Humperdink will guide the innocent couple through their preposterous pre-marital counseling and will be presiding over the nuptials. Mama Goodin is on hand to give her bitter “two-cents worth” of marital advice to granddaughter, Ura. Family come from out of town to help prep for the couple’s big day. An early “get-together” is planned at the Goodin’ Family Funeral Parlor and Wedding Chapel in order for the Bodine Family and the Goodin Family to meet for the very first time.
Overprotective parents, obnoxious in-laws, and uninvited guests like Cleopha Blair make for an outlandish fiasco, and all of that before the wedding day. With jealous and egotistical personalities present, mayhem is sure to break out any moment. Tempers flare and more dark family skeletons fall out of the closet. All is not lost. This contrary union between two unsuspecting sweethearts could bring consolation to some broken hearts. Many lessons are to be learned about life and love.
“For Better or Worse” will be presented every weekend, August 12 through September 4, at LampLight Theatre at 140 Broad Street in Kingsport, TN. Nightly performances will be at 7:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, Matinees on Saturdays at 2:00 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. Doors will open one hour prior. Admission is a suggested donation of $10 Adults, $5 Students, and FREE for children 5 and under.
For reservations and information, please contact the LampLight box office at (423) 343-1766, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
