Dearly Beloved
by
Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten

DIRECTED BY SANDY SCHUETZ

The Futrelle Sisters, Frankie, Honey Raye and Twink, are throwing a wedding. Frankie has almost
made herself sick with elaborate preparations for her daughter Tina Jo's antebellum-inspired
wedding, and the rumor mill in their small town of Fayro, Texas, is working overtime. No surprise
there, the Futrelle Sisters have never been strangers to gossip. After all, they did survive the
scandalous breakup of their almost-famous gospel singing trio, The Sermonettes. But Twink's
desperate attempts to get her boyfriend of fifteen-and-one-half years down the aisle, Frankie's
ongoing conversations with their dead mother, and Honey Raye's tendency to race to the altar at
every opportunity have kept tongues wagging for years. In spite of her own marital problems, Frankie
has held steadfastly to the hope that she can pull off one "final Futrelle occasion" with elegance and
style with the help of the cantankerous wedding coordinator, Miss Geneva, who runs the local floral
shop/bus depot. But on the day of the nuptials, Frankie's hope begins to dim when she discovers
Twink's alternative solution to an expensive catered wedding dinner is a potluck supper sponsored
by Clovis Sanford's House of Meat. When the prodigal Honey Raye arrives at the church consumed
by hot flashes and a steely determination to right old family wrongs, Frankie's hope is shaken. And
where are Tina Jo and her fiancé? The sisters ultimately pull together to find ways to keep the
unsuspecting guests in the pews while a highway patrolman races off to track down the missing
bride and groom.
