If you enjoyed Playgoers’ Of Lethbridge’s 2014 dinner theatre of “the Dixie Swim Club,” then you will love the comedy “ Always A Bridesmaid,” penned by the same playwrights —  Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten.
 Director Lee Prindle, who directed “Dixie Swim Club” is excited to direct  “Always a Bridesmaid,” which will take the stage  Oct. 18-22  at the Country Kitchen.
 So Playgoers are looking for six women to be part of the production.
“ It‘s similar to Dixie Swim Club,” he said.
four of the women are in their 40s or 50s, one older lady and one around 20, but play whatever age you want,” Prindle said.
 Auditions will be at Casa from 6-8 p.m. on June 28 and 30.
“It is about four women who make a vow to always be  bridesmaid at each other’s weddings. But one gets married three times and another waits until she is middle aged. Buy the time they all get to be  bridesmaids, they are all older,” Prindle summarized.
 “ But while  Dixie Swim Club progresses over 30 years, “Always a Bridesmaid” only looks back seven years,” he said, adding each scene is introduced by  a young woman who is the daughter of one of  the main characters.
“ One of the women runs a wedding chapel. I envision her to be  like Bea Arthur,” he said, noting  there are four major parts and two relatively minor parts.
“ Though there are no small parts,” he said.
“It’s not a melodrama, it’s a good comedy,” Prindle said.
“I’d love to see some seasoned people, but I want to see some new people as  well. I want the cast to be able to work together well. That’s the most important  thing,” he said
 He noted  he hopes to cast the actors as soon as possible and give them a month to learn their lines before embarking on heavy rehearsals in August.
 He is excited to direct another play by the same playwrights for Playgoers of Lethbridge.
“ I suggested a couple of plays to do and  they used one, Boeing Boeing, as their mainstage production. I’m retired now and don’t go to Arizona until November, so I have the time. Playgoers has given me so much. I want to give something back,” Prindle said.
 Auditions for “Always a Bridesmaid” are Tuesday, June 28 and Thursday June 30 at Casa. from 6-8 p.m. he encouraged anybody interested in helping back stage to come then as well.
