This ferociously funny, family-friendly Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy will have you laughing your way across the country and all the way down the aisle!
An outrageously 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 four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama’s vintage sedan. As Savannah steels herself for this hastily conceived road trip, another outrageous complication arises: the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced. Eventually the race to get to the church on time takes its toll and the overwhelmed bride calls off the wedding. Rising above their age-old mother-daughter issues, Norleen and Savannah work together to get the nuptials back on track. In a surprising and heartwarming resolution, they forge an exciting new path for their own relationship and welcome the new bride into their delightfully wacky family.

This production is Directed by Bob Cozza and will be on stage September 23 - October 3

Ages 16 + are invited to audition


Why Audition at Cultural Park Theater?

If you have made it this far, then perhaps you’ll go a little further.  Read on, and allow me to spend a few minutes encouraging you to take the next step to auditioning at CPT.
Many people are curious about what it is like to perform on stage.  Somewhere in the back of their mind they wonder if they could possibly do this and also wonder about the pros and cons of it all.  Rest assured, anyone can do this.  YOU can do this.  All it takes is for you to dabble your toes in the water for the first time.
CPT actively encourages new people to audition.   As a community theatre, we depend upon new blood to keep us growing and alive.  Many directors actively recruit new people for that very reason.  And each year we cast many actors from the ages of 7 through 77 and up. Auditioning for a show isn’t all that difficult or scary.  Many others have done it – so can you.
If you think you may want to try, but are still wondering if you have the time or need to know more, contact the CPT office and they will send your information to the show director who will contact you to answer any questions that you may have.
Every audition is different, and every director conducts their auditions differently from the others.  But here are a few things that are universally true for them all:
New faces are ALWAYS welcome at CPT.   Directors actively recruit new actors and actresses all year.
Everyone at an audition wants you to do well – even those auditioning for the same role are cheering you on. You are admired and respected just for trying.
Don’t judge your talent or stage possibilities. The director appraises auditioners objectively to determine the best mix of people and talents for their production.
If you don’t receive a role, it doesn’t mean you weren’t great.  Each role brings an ingredient to the mix and the director needs to select the cast that blends the best.
Winston Churchill said it best, “Never, never, never give up.”    If you don’t land a role the first time it just means that maybe you weren’t a good fit for the current show but you could be great for the next one.
A CPT production brings together the most diverse group of people you could imagine.  In working towards opening night, whether your part is large or small, we become close friends and have the best of times together!  And remember that while the risk of auditioning may seem huge, the payoff is much bigger.
Cultural Park Theater produces 16 plays, musicals and revues each year. All auditions are open to everyone so keep your eyes on this website, our facebook page and your email for audition opportunities.
