Father of the Bride, by Caroline Francke
Tremendous family entertainment!
Thursday, August 26, 2004
5.0
Father of the Bride is the second CatCo production my wife and I have seen together. Both Brigadoon and Father of the Bride represented the best in wholesome family entertainment. Between R-rated violent, vulgar movies and Eminem-like music with explicit lyrics it can be difficult to find a choice like this one.

The venue is charming! The old Cumming schoolhouse's red brick face is warm and inviting. Inside we got an unexpected treat in the beautiful classrooms adorned with photos and trinkets from the school's history. Very cool. The theatre itself is gorgeous with a warm, intimate atmosphere from the natural wood floor to the open ceiling.

Father of the Bride's set was very cute. The detail was extraordinary and it was evident that a lot of people put a lot of hard work into it.

The costumes and make-up were first-rate. The caterer (Massoula?) looked authentic and Tammy's costumes (the bride's teen-age sister) were precious.

Music? They should have sold the sound-track. People just don't appreciate good music anymore. Sorry, Eminem.

The acting was terrific. I don't think any of these folks will be thanking the academy anytime soon, but you can sure see how hard they worked. The result was just like last year's Brigadoon-- we left convinced that these were not actors, but characters in the story. Bill Wilson is lovable. Katie Fox (Tammy) was cute and fit her role beautifully. Cheryl Rogers (Delilah) was hilarious. Mary Becker (Ellie) was great. Julie Andrews (Kay) was excellent as well. My good friend Steve Cook (Buckley) was great again, but my wife and I both felt that Steve's lovely wife Katy stole the show as Miss Bellamy. We roared every time she took to the stage!

And the crowd was terrific, too. They ranged from well-behaved tots to long-tenured AARP members. Everyone had a great time.

Father of the Bride is closing soon. If you haven't seen it yet, don't miss out! We can't wait to see CatCo's next project!!!
