A dysfunctional wedding party is the backdrop for “Till Death Do Us Part,” premiering later this month sponsored by the Ford City Library.

The dinner theater comedy immerses the audience in a wedding reception that goes horribly wrong, leaving broken hearts, loads of laughs and a corpse along the way, said Library Director Anita Bowser.

“This will be the most entertaining wedding reception you’ve been to in ages,” she said.

The play was written and directed by Library Trustee Connie Ruffner, who teaches improvisation workshops at the library. Ruffner crafted “Till Death Do Us Part” in order to involve audience members and encourage participation in the show, Bowser said.

Tickets must be purchased in advance and are $45 each or two for $75. To get tickets, stop by Ford City Library, Janny’s Hallmark or Young’s
Interior & Flooring, in Ford City, or Paul’s Auto Parts, in Kittanning.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for the event at 7 p.m. Sept. 29 at Ford Cliff Fire Hall. Cash bar, basket raffles and prizes round out the festivities.
