As Dave Curbow enters his 17th year of directing Alta's spring play, he will direct a farce guaranteed to make everyone laugh.
Alta's spring play for 2001 is Here Come the Brides by William Fisher. The play will be presented Tuesday and Wednesday, March 13 and 14 at the Roxy Theater.
"We've just started practicing every afternoon and are still in the books," Curbow said. "We'll be getting to the script soon."
Here Come the Brides will feature David Gregg as Jimmy Took, a man needing a bride; Aaron Thompson as Bill Thompson, Jimmy's friend and roommate; Megan Hesse as Bill's Aunt Ellen; Matt Koth as a bill collecting Mr. Oswald; Andy Whipkey as Jimmy's Uncle Dan; Brian Anderson as the love-starved J.D.; Diana Paup is Peg, Uncle Dan's ward. Mrs. Smythe, a fortune hunter, is played by Siera Bonnesen; Bubbles Smythe is created by Elizabeth Pedersen; Elizabeth Kennedy plays a rather different type of lady who is pursued by Sarah Gregg, Samantha Quirk and Tabitha Thompson.
"Right now we've got a couch and a chair we're rehearsing with," Curbow said. "We're practicing as much as we can when we can get everyone together."
