Opening gifts as they arrive ahead of Kay and Buckey’s wedding, a scene in the MHS play “Father of the Bride.” Seated at Luke Weber and Buckley, Jordyn Patterson as Kay, and Eden Smith as Delilah. Standing are Robby Holmes as Tommy, David Bagby as Mr. Banks, Scott Lange as Ben, Cleo Sullivan as Mrs. Banks, and Grace Gadient as Mrs. Pulitzki.

     The Monticello High School Drama Department will present its spring play, “Father of the Bride,” on Thursday and Friday, March 2 and 3, 7 p.m. in the MHS Auditorium.

     In the play, Mr. Banks is shocked when his daughter Kay announces her engagement. But when Buckley and Kay’s “simple wedding” with a few friends turns into a large affair, the trouble begins.

     The guest list gets longer, a caterer is called, florists, furniture movers and dressmakers take over, and the Banks household is in turmoil, and in debt. Then, when Kay calls off the wedding, everyone’s patience snaps.

     Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and students. The cast and crew lists follow.
