Tony N Tina's Wedding
Location: Greenoaks Funeral Home and Memorial Park
A theatre event unlike any you may have experienced before, Tony N Tina's Wedding is an interactive, environmental comedy that will leave you in stitches -- and part of the show.
Described by the Chicago Tribune as "Just like a real wedding.....only funnier.", your tickets get you an invitation to be a guest at the wedding and reception of Tina Vitale and Tony Nunzio. Join them, and the rest of their crazy Italian family as they try to have the wedding of Tina's dreams -- but fall a little short.
This show is a tacky, delightful sendup to Italian weddings and as a "guest" at the wedding you are encouraged to mix, mingle and interact with all of the participants. You never know what drama you may get swept up in with this crazy family!
Each ticket includes:
-- entry to the wedding,
-- an Italian dinner reception*
-- one glass of wine at the bar.

Written by John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Greg Williams
It's 1964, St. Nicholas in the Bronx. A charismatic priest, Father Flynn, is trying to upend the school's strict customs, which have long been fiercely guarded by Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the iron-gloved Principal who believes in the power of fear-based discipline. The winds of political change are sweeping through the community, and indeed, the school has just accepted its first black student, Donald Miller. But when Sister James, a hopeful innocent, shares with Sister Aloysius her guilt-inducing suspicion that Father Flynn is paying too much personal attention to Donald, Sister Aloysius sets off on a personal crusade to unearth the truth and to expunge Flynn from the school. Now, without a shard of proof besides her moral certainty, Sister Aloysius locks into a battle of wills with Father Flynn which threatens to tear apart the community with irrevocable consequences.
“All the elements come invigoratingly together like clockwork in John Patrick Shanley’s provocative new play, DOUBT, a gripping story of suspicion cast on a priest’s behavior that is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty. .” —Variety.
“How splendid it feels to be trusted with such passionate, exquisite ambiguity unlike anything we have seen from this prolific playwright so far. Blunt yet subtle, manipulative but full of empathy for all sides, the play is set in 1964 but could not be more timely. In just ninety fast-moving minutes, Shanley creates four blazingly individual people. DOUBT is a lean, potent drama…passionate, exquisite, important and engrossing.” —NY Newsday.
“An eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequences. A gripping mystery, tightly written.” —Time Out NY.
Congratulations to the incredible cast of Doubt:
Sister Aloysius: Chrissy Bienvenu
Father Flynn: Aaron Wood*
Sister James: Makaylee Secrest
Mrs. Miller: Allyson Lee
