Southern Fried Nuptials plays thru June 10

Return to New Edinburgh, Mississippi once
again, because the only thing funnier than
a Southern funeral is a Southern wedding!

The Frye family is back and this time one
of them is getting married. Or maybe not!
The engagement of Atticus Van Leer and
Harlene Frye has been on again, off again
more times than they can count. Now half
the town has been invited, the dress has
been fitted, the flowers have been ordered
and the gifts are piling up in the living
room.

Will they or won’t they? Find out in
this hysterical hit comedy from the authors of Southern Fried Funeral.
