Grant Park Players Presents Dearly Beloved

Jan. 18, 2011

The Grant Park Players of South Milwaukee, WI- A community theatre, is pleased to present Dearly Beloved. The performance will be at the South Milwaukee PAC. Dearly Beloved, is a Southern comedy, authored by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. Opening on Friday, February 4th at 7:30 pm, the comedy runs for two weekends through Sunday February 13th. Performances are held on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm and Sunday February 13th at 4:00pm.

Dearly Beloved is a Southern comedy and is the first of a trilogy of plays. The three playwrights have impressive backgrounds: Jessie Jones co-authored the play, Dearly Departed, as well as its screen adaptation, Kingdom Come; Nicholas Hope won the Texas New Playwright's Festival for his first play, A Friend Of The Family and was Director of Casting for ABC Television in Los Angeles; and North Carolina native Jamie Wooten has written and produced nearly four hundred episodes of network television, including For Your Love, Half And Half, and four seasons on the classic series, The Golden Girls. All three playwrights were born and raised in the South and cherish their heritage. They write about the South they know best – the South of their childhoods.

In Dearly Beloved, a Southern wedding goes hilariously off course with its Gone With the Wind theme, a reception catered by Clovis Sanford's House of Meat (with potluck side items), and a missing bride and groom. In this fast-paced comedy about love, marriage, sisterhood, gospel music and three hundred pounds of good, ol' Texas barbeque, you'll laugh all the way down the aisle!

“It is a privilege for us to produce Dearly Beloved as we continue to grow community theater in South Milwaukee,” says Denise Kujawa, President of the Grant Park Players. They group is now in their third season and quickly becoming one of the top local community theatres in the area.

Dearly Beloved is directed by April L King. The set was designed by James and Theresa Gates of South Milwaukee. The crew consists of more than twenty people of all ages and backgrounds many with ties to the South Milwaukee community. The cast of 10 includes GPP veterans Laura Bambrick, June Cantu’, Janet Garcia, Denise Kujawa, Mark McGuire, Ray Nowak, and Paul Weir and newcomers Janis Bauer, Kathy Landry and Chris Osborn.
