Keystone Theatrics at The Playhouse At Allenberry Announces Auditions For It Shoulda Been You!

Directed by Aaron Dalton
Music/Vocal Direction by Mary George

Show Description
In the hilarious and heartwarming new musical It Shoulda Been You, it’s a culture clash for the ages when two families from wildly different backgrounds come together to celebrate a wedding.  As if the union wasn’t complicated enough, the bride’s ex-boyfriend arrives, bringing the wedding to a screeching halt and throwing both families into hysterical chaos. Plots are hatched, promises broken, secrets exposed – and the bride’s resourceful sister is left to turn an unmitigated disaster into happily ever after. A hilarious new musical complete with blushing brides, nervous grooms, overbearing moms, unexpected guests and enough twists and turns to make even the most experienced wedding planner throw up his hands and say “Holy Matrimony!”
