Audition: Maggie’s Getting Married, Theatre Aurora

Theatre Aurora presents Maggie’s Getting Married by Norm Foster

Director: Jamie Defoe

On the night before the wedding of their youngest daughter, Maggie, and their soon-to-be-son-in-law, Russell, the Duncans have gathered for one final family party. When Maggie’s older sister returns home for the wedding, she discovers that she knows Russell a little better than Maggie would prefer, and the mayhem ensues. Written by Norm Foster, Canada’s funniest and most-produced playwright, this rip-roaring comedy will have you laughing up the aisles and leaving the theatre with a side-ache!
