Father of the Bride, by Caroline Francke
This is a Great Show
Thursday, August 19, 2004
5.0
I just want to thank Cumming Attractions Theater Company (CATCo) for putting on another wonderful production. It would be a shame if anyone missed the opportunity to see it. The cast, set, costumes, and music are all top notch and certainly worth the trip to Cumming to enjoy. The new Cumming Playhouse is beautiful and a perfect venue for this fine troupe. As "familymom" has said, it is rare today to find wholesome, family entertainment which I have found out is CATCo's stock and trade.
This show does date itself, however, it brings to mind a time when life was simpler and the problems the Banks family have to face are timeless.
Kudos to the lead actors, Bill Wilson (Stanley), Mary Becker (Ellie) and Julie Andrews (Kay), and to the rest of the family, including Jack Carpenter (Ben), and Katy Fox (Tammy). They bring the Banks family to life and do it with energy and fine comic timing.
The supporting cast is equal to their tasks as well: Steve Cook as the clueless groom, Buckley; Kate Awtry as the "eager to be married" Peggy; Katy Cook as the organized but frustrated secretary, Miss Bellamy; Cheryl Rogers as the "in charge maid" (Delilah), Adam Levenstein as Joe, the dead pan "circulation expert" and last, but certainly not least, Chris Goldston who IS Massoula, the exotic and flamboyant caterer.
I laughed from the opening scene to the last, (and even cried a little) as did the rest of the audience. This is a great show and I certainly look forward to seeing more CATCo productions in the future. Thank you again, CATCo.
