CAST

Ages indicated are guidelines, not set in stone. All adults are encouraged to audition.

Sandy – The wedding chapel owner.  Four-times-married-three-times-divorced owner of a wedding chapel in Las Vegas. (40s-60s) (In all scenes)

Wedding #1:  The Payback

Bev – The angry bride: Recently dumped, Bev is intent on a revenge marriage, but with the benefit of actually loving the man she is using to get even.  (30s-40s)

Stan – The angry groom: Dumped by his wife, he is determined to marry the ex of the guy who got his gal.  Still carrying a major torch for his former wife, revenge seems the right thing to do. (30s-40s) (Also is the producer in wedding 4)

John – The Elvis minister who works next door: He is able to play Elvis at the drop of a sequined hat, but has a sensitive, non-cynical side. (30s-50s)

Wedding #2:  The Comeback

Vanessa – The older bride with well-kept glamour: A fading actress who saw her glory days in a beach-blanket, spy vs spy sitcom. (50s-60s).

Bryce – The older groom, still handsome: A fading actor who wants to capture his bygone days when surfing against the soviets was his life. (50-60’s).

Lou – The minister: A bit off in some ways, but watches well, and has a faint remnant of when he was once an Elvis to be reckoned with. (60s-80s)

Wedding #3:  The Real Thing

Fiona – The bride, tough ex-con:  Fiona never got a chance to make life work – bad home life, poor choice in friends, even worse choice in boyfriends, now recently paroled and united with her pen pal love. (20s-30s)

Marvin – The groom, gentle postal worker: As well versed in zip codes as his scriptures, Marvin knows to look on the inside and past the tattoos for an eternal companion. (20s-40s)

Fist – Scary friend of the bride: Obey the fist. He is a Cro-Magnon felon who punches first and thinks later. (20s-30s)

Wedding #4:  Sandy & Ken:  The Epilogue

Ken – Sandy’s ex-husband, drunk: cameo role. (40s-60s)
