ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID
Rating: PG
MIDWEST PREMIERE!
In this hilarious comedy, four high school friends made a vow to be in each other's weddings, no matter what. Little did they know, thirty years later, they'd still be keeping that promise. Join Deedra, Monette, Charlie and Libby Ruth through the years as they navigate the choppy and unpredictable waters of their friendship and many marriages! If you've ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride's bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of the couple saying "I do" or been forced to wear the world's ugliest bridesmaid dress, this deliriously funny JONES HOPE WOOTEN comedy (authors of The Dixie Swim Club) is definitely for you … and your dearly beloved!
