Six area bakeries have donated wedding cakes for the production and a different Italian restaurant will feed the “wedding guests” each night. The restaurants have been generous in cutting pricing for their catering for this charity event. The restaurants and bakeries will be listed alongside each performance so guests can choose which wedding night to attend based on what meal they’d like to eat! (Full list available here.)
Local florists, DJs and The Wedding Shoppe donated their goods and services to complete the evening. The Wedding Shoppe went out of its way to custom make not one, but two, wedding gowns specifically for the actress playing the bride. One will be worn in the production and one will be displayed in their shop in Troy, MO to help advertise the show.
Berardi and Roman are two local mothers of children with autism and have co-written the play, with Roman directing. The lead character is a man with Aspergers and a local young actor with Aspergers will also have a role in the play. Proceeds from tickets sales go directly to the not for profit AFA which ensures all money raised is used locally.
Tickets are on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets and only a select amount of rush tickets for the first act will be sold at the door.
