Coldwater, MI – In what could be the perfect marriage, Patty’s Apparel and Bridal Shoppe has teamed with Tibbits’ as sponsor for the theatre’s upcoming production of “Always a Bridesmaid,” a hilarious comedy which opens at the opera house September 25 and runs through October 3.
“Always a Bridesmaid,” has fun with a group of four friends who promised at their senior prom to be in each other’s weddings. The show takes audiences on a comic journey over the past 30 years with these beleaguered bridesmaids as they navigate the choppy waters of love and matrimony.
Patty’s Apparel & Bridal Shoppe, located in Quincy, is one of the largest bridal stores in the tri-state area. It has served mothers and daughters for weddings, proms, dances and special occasions since 1953.
Patty’s Apparel and Bridal is now helping its third generation of brides with their special day. Patty’s prides itself on offering friendly, personal service and reliability. Even their alterations, pressing and packaging of the gowns is done in house. Customers travel for hours from Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana to shop at Patty’s. The quality selection of gowns by top designers and accessories including veils, jewelry and shoes makes it a memorable place to shop for wedding, bridesmaids, flower girl, and mothers’ dresses.
According to Rachel Tell, “The girls of Patty’s are so excited to have the opportunity to be a part of this production with Tibbits!”
A Tibbits production similar to the shows in the summer, “Always a Bridesmaid” features a cast of six professional actresses all of whom have been a part of Tibbits Summer Theatre. The cast includes Gloria Logan, Donna Schulte, Suzanne Marie Stewart, Deb Culver, Diane Long and Lindsey Dakota Spencer. The comedy is directed by Charles Burr. It is written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten authors of Tibbits’ 2013 production of “The Dixie Swim Club.”
