17th Year Anniversary makes TONY n’ TINA’s WEDDING the longest running show in WNY History!
Actors Anonymous Theatre Company presents Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding from January 2018 through February 2018. Guests will not only be treated to dinner and a show during the next few weekends, but they will get to become part of the show. Actors Anonymous Theatre Company is celebrating its 17 th season of “Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding”— one of the longest running interactive shows in Western New York and a Buffalo Tradition. The show includes a theatrical performance, dinner, drinks, live music and the chance to participate in various aspects of the wedding.
“Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding” is a comedy show that follows the events that take place during an Italian-American wedding of Tony and Tina. “This is a parody of things that happen at a wedding so guests will be familiar with many of the things they see in the show,” explained Kevin Barwell, the executive and artistic director of Actors Anonymous. “The patrons are a part of the show and Tony and Tina’s family.”
The evening starts out with the wedding ceremony of Tony and Tina. It is then followed by a wedding reception where guests will be treated to a full Italian buffet dinner, wedding cake, drinks (cash bar) and dancing to music performed by Donny Dulce and Fusion. Music will include wedding favorites such as the YMCA and the chicken dance, as well as other wedding classics to get everyone out of their seat and on the dance floor to enjoy the evening alongside the bridal party.
“There are so many surprises in store for the audience throughout the evening,” added Barwell. “There’s the sacred dance of the waiters, an impromptu performance by Tony’s father’s stripper girlfriend, a drunken priest, a comedy monologue, bickering family members and you can never tell when the pregnant bridesmaid will go into labor.” “Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding” features several veteran actors including Karah Krajewski, Bill Kennedy, John Pirrone, Scot Kaitanowski, Justyn Harris and more. The show also includes new actors to the troupe including Curtis Rose, Peter Snodgrass, Jodi Cook, Glenn Kane, Sean Farrell and Joe Schenkel. The production is directed by Kevin Barwell.
