Mark your calendars. Fall theater performances are weeks away and you don’t want to miss the work of these talented high school students. This season, Pickerington High School Central is presenting ‘Father of the Bride’ and Pickerington High School North is presenting ‘You Can’t Beat the House.’

Pickerington High School Central ‘Father of the Bride’

‘Father of the Bride’ is a family-friendly show about love, life, and the craziness that is a wedding. When a young daughter springs a wedding on her parents with little to no choice, the Banks family scrambles to create the perfect wedding. The trouble really begins when the small affair becomes a wedding with a guest list of 300 people.

When a “state of war” is declared by the wedding assistant, turmoil mounts in the Banks household. In an effort to try to save the wedding, a wedding designer is called in. From caterers, a florist, furniture movers, and dressmakers to an attempt to call off the wedding, everything comes together to creates a beautiful celebration. Not without a few last-minute crises, of course!

Buy your tickets for ‘Father of the Bride’ here, for a night that is sure to be filled of laughter and enjoyment. Tickets are $11 advanced sales and $13 at the door.
