One of the Okanagan’s top wedding destinations, Lone Pine Ranch Event Centre has announced it is staging the rebirth of the 1980s’ smash hit Tony & Tina’s Wedding in spring, 2017.
The play will come with a unique country twist, said Lone Pine facility director and producer Dee Cristante.
“The wildly hilarious Italian-style wedding dinner show will include its usual mystery guest list, the public,” she said. “In addition to new and exciting turn of events that pay out throughout the wedding production, the wedding invitation will include a ceremony, family-style Italian dinner, old fashion barn dance, garter tossing and much more.”
Ticket holders will be urged to dress in theme for the occasion.
Lone Pine Ranch, located near Predator Ridge on Commonage Road, is hosting open auditions for all local talent wanting to join in on the wedding celebration.
Casting of Tony, Tina, all their family members, and even Elvis takes place Sunday, Jan. 15, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
“We are making the casting call fun and simple,” said Cristante. “Those interested merely have to show up in character and costume. They don’t even necessarily have to have any acting experience as long as they look the part.”
The production of Tony & Tina’s Wedding launches at Lone Pine Ranch Easter long weekend with a media launch party Thursday, April 13. Tickets go on sale to the public March 1, with limited seating per wedding show.
