“Wedding Bell Blues” To Open This Weekend


The Progress

The Mesquite Drama Queen team of Nancy Arnold and Susan Kjellsen are at it again. Their creative juices have been flowing. The end result is the melodrama “Wedding Bell Blues, or How the Virgin Valley Got its Groove On” being staged this month by the Virgin Valley Theatre Group.

The drama takes place in 1965 and patrons are invited to come join the fun in their love beads, tie-dyes and bellbottoms. Music hits from back in the day will rock you.

The play opens on Friday March 11, at 7 PM in the Virgin Valley Community Theater. The production will then be presented every Friday in March at 7 PM, each Saturday in March at 7 PM with Sunday matinees on March 13 and 20 at 2 PM.

The audience can expect some surprises during the intermission.

Brighton Early loves Paisley Tye and they want to get married at Hotel Li’zard. But a few folks in the town do not want that to happen. Add a little bottle of love potion and the stage is set for fun and laughter.

Arnold and Kjellsen love what they do and love the Virgin Valley Theater Group. They write the scripts and do not charge for their local use. The ticket money thus stays with the theater group to make improvements.

Tickets on sale on line at www.mctnv.gov or at ticket office one hour before show time and 4-6 on Thursdays. Advanced tickets are recommended. Tickets can also be purchased at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery.
