PRELUDE TO A KISS: A Theater Arts Guild Production.

Peter is an attractive, bright, slightly geeky publisher. Rita is a beautiful, bohemian, eccentric bartender. Despite her secret fear of the world and hesitancy to invest in joy, the two fall in love and marry.

At the wedding reception, a decaying Old Man crashes the party and wishes the couple good luck. When he asks to kiss the bride, and Rita agrees, the course of their relationships is extraordinarily and gravely altered.

What follows is a poignant and humorous story as we follow Peter down the rabbit hole of commitment, loyalty, and true love. Will Peter and Rita truly find their happily ever after? If you know what happens don't give it away!!

Marvelous NW jazz vocalist Joan Penney and her band perform a sublime 30 minute pre-show, and underscore the scenes throughout the play.
