Synopsis: THE STORY: A hilarious race against the clock begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt
agrees to get her feisty mother all the way from Alabama to California in time for her brother’s wedding. Savannah’s problem: Mama won’t fly.


With only 4 days to make it to the ceremony, this daughter has no choice but to drive cross- country with her willful mother in Mama’s vintage sedan. As Savannah steels herself for this hastily conceived road trip,  another outrageous complication arises: the over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced. Hayley Quinn, delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, is convinced that travelling together to her wedding is the perfect way to bond. The folly of her decision quickly becomes apparent when the journey begins, and comedic chaos ensues.


Every conceivable—and inconceivable—mishap that can occur does, including the theft of their car; all their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental homicide of an Texas relative, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked 18- wheeler and a detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl/minister.


As the misadventures multiply, the trio rapidly develops the urge to ditch each other anywhere along the way. Eventually the race to get to the church on time takes its toll; the bride calls off the wedding. Rising above their age-old mother-daughter issues, Norleen; Savannah work together to get the nuptials back on track. In a surprising; heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new path for their own relationship; welcome Hayley into their delightfully wacky family.


Performances are October 12 and 19 at 7 pm and October 13 and 20 at 3 pm. Rehearsals will be every Tuesday and Thursday. Time and starting date to be determined.
