Wanted: One Groom

Bridget had one more opportunity to be in a high school play this past weekend.   They did student directed Playbills and Bridget was in one called, "Wanted: One Groom."

Bridget playing "Kayla" and her best friend on stage talk about her wedding plan while Mrs. Shand sits on the couch.

A brief synapsis: Mr. and Mrs. Shand’s meeting through a classified ad brought marital bliss.  So why not place a husband want ad for Kayla, their daughter?  But the family carries strict requirements:  respect for elders, a promising future and an appreciation for antiques.  Excited over the prospect, Kayla invites her best friend over to discuss arrangements.  The doorbell rings.  A young gentleman, who just happens to be eligible, is answering an ad...  for an antique statue!  But he’s well-mannered, obviously likes antiques and is even studying law at Harvard.  Through a hilarious conversation laced with double meanings, the prospective buyer becomes the prospective groom.

The Best Friend tries to talk the parents, Kayla, and the potential groom out of the ridiculousness of planning a wedding with a want ad.

They need to wait just a few days for the marriage license after all.
