AUDITIONS: Emerald Pig Theatrical Society is casting for Tony and Tina's Wedding

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 11:41 AM | GVPTA (Administrator)

The Performance:

Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is a one-of-a-kind night theatrical experience like no other! It’s a comedy staged as a festive celebration in which the audience doesn’t just watch the show, but participates directly in the fun as members of the family or friends of the bride and groom. From the wedding ceremony to the reception, join Tony and Tina’s colourful and madcap Italian-American families in a show people are never soon to forget.

By blurring the line between fantasy and reality, the show works its magic and draws the audience into eating, drinking, dancing and conversing, just as you would at a real wedding. They will experience (and be part of!) the surprises and drama of a real wedding as they get caught up in the celebration, partying along with the rest of Tony and Tina’s family and friends as if they’ve known them for years.

That’s how Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding has won over the hearts of thousands of people since the show first opened in New York City in 1988. The longest running Off-Broadway show has since enjoyed extended runs and worldwide success, with performances in over 100 cities across the US, Europe and Asia.

From the first toast to the last slice of cake, critics agree! Everyone will want to RSVP for Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding.
