‘Maggie’s Getting Married’: Side-splitting comedy opens Friday on JCCT stage

Staff reports • Jun 11, 2013 at 9:08 AM

It’s the night before the wedding, but there’s still plenty of time for plans to change before “Maggie’s Getting Married,” opening Friday at Johnson City Community Theatre.

Performances of the side-splittingly funny comedy, written by Canadian playwright Norm Foster, are at 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, June 14, 15, 21, 22, 28 and 29, with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m., June 23.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students, seniors and active military members.

On the night before the wedding of their youngest daughter, Maggie (Kallie Gay) and their soon-to-be son-in-law Russell MacMillan (Daniel Reed Potts), the Duncans (Janie Jessie and Bill Campbell) have gathered for one final family party. When Maggie’s older sister, Wanda (Melanie Yodkins), returns home for the wedding with her boyfriend, Axel (Justin Aubin), she discovers that she knows Russell a little better than Maggie would like for her to, and the mayhem ensues.

In the midst of it all, Maggie’s father tries to find a subtle way to question his daughter on her choice of a mate.

“I want people to leave laughing and feeling good,” said the show’s director, Nancy Hope Major, “We have a wonderful cast and I can’t wait to share our hard work with the audience.”

Major’s production staff includes Rachel Townsend as production stage manager, Keith Jeffers as set designer, Adam Honeycutt as lights and sound designer, Derek Smithpeters as makeup designer, Will Vincent as lighting technician and Stephanie Mangicotti as properties mistress.

The show is sponsored in part by TruPoint Bank, Southeastern Ford and Celebrate.

Now in its 101st Season, JCCT holds the distinction of being Tennessee’s longest continually running theatre group.
