Famous film comes to stage at Beef & Boards

Wedding bells are ringing — but they’re playing the blues for Stanley Banks as he unwillingly becomes the “Father of the Bride,” on stage now through Sept. 29 at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Road.

Banks still thinks of his daughter as a little girl in pigtails who has him wrapped around her finger. But reality shatters his delusion when she reveals an engagement ring is now there.

Kay Banks promises it will be a simple wedding with just a few friends. But soon the guest list is growing uncontrollably, and suddenly Stanley’s life and home have become a whirlwind of telephone calls, caterers, florists, furniture movers, dressmakers, and ever-mounting turmoil. In the midst of the chaos, Kay calls off the wedding, closing the book on her happily ever after before the first chapter is written. It’s going to take all he’s got for this father to keep it together and help things get set right again before his sanity, finances, and possibly the bride herself, run out.

Based on the novel by Edward Streeter, “Father of the Bride” was made famous through the 1950 film starring Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett, and Elizabeth Taylor, and later with the 1991 film starring Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, and Kimberly Williams.

Jeff Stockberger plays the role of stressed father Stanley Banks in Beef & Boards’ production of “Father of the Bride.” Kristin Lennox plays his wife, Mrs. Banks, while Lisa Ermel plays the role of the bride, Kay Banks. Rounding out the cast are Joseph Mervis as Kay’s brother, Tommy; Ben Tebbe as the groom, Buckley Dunstan; Ivory McKay as the flamboyant wedding planner Mr. Massoula; Deb Wims as Mr. Banks’ secretary, Ms. Bellamy; and Sandra Belles as Massoula’s assistant, Butch.

Tickets range from $37.50 to $62.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, fruit and salad bar, and select beverages. Discounts are available for children and groups of 20 or more. Parking is free.

For reservations call the Beef & Boards box office at 872-9664. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays.
