As most people learn in their twenties, real weddings are not laugh riots. Either the bride forgets her veil, a groomsman is drunk, someone gives an awkward toast or another cringe-provoking thing happens. Even if there is an actual funny occurrence, people really don't show amusement out of respect for the bride — and fear for their lives (the wedding party is under a lot of pressure). But you don't have to be afraid to chuckle during the Alton Little Theater's production of There Goes the Bride. This comedy by John Chapman and Ray Cooney presents a wedding story that's anything but fairy-tale: On top of all the usual woes, the bride's dad gets knocked on the head and is seeing things! Catch this Bride and get the giggles at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 15; call 618-462-6562 or visit www.altonlittletheater.org for other times and more information. Tickets cost $6 to $14, and the theater is located at 2450 North Henry Street in Alton, Illinois.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: March 7. Continues through March 16, 2008
