What happens in Vegas is downright hilarious! The Yardley Players will present the comedy “Four Weddings and an Elvis” at Mercer County Community College’s Kelsey Theatre, 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor, in February.

Dates and show times for “Four Weddings and an Elvis” are Feb. 15 and Feb. 22 at 8 p.m.; Feb. 16 and Feb. 23 at 8 p.m.; and Feb. 17 and Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. The community is invited to an opening night reception with the cast and crew on Feb. 15.

Sandy is the three-times-divorced owner of a Las Vegas wedding chapel. She has seen her fair share of unusual couples, but the matrimony business is about to get a whole lot weirder, according to a press release.

There’s Bev and Stan, who are getting married by “The King” to exact revenge on their exes; Vanessa and Bryce, two aging, arrogant stars who are tying the knot as a publicity stunt, and are vexed Elvis doesn’t even recognize them; and Martin and Fiona, a gentle postal worker and a tough ex-con trying to exchange their vows before the police arrive.

But the final wedding is the best and funniest of them all. Add them all up and there is comedy galore, and a touch of romance, according to the press release.

The show stars Tristan Takacs of Trenton as John (Elvis); Susan Galli of Lambertville as Sandy; Tim Moran of East Windsor as Stan; Erin Wurtz of Levittown, Pa., as Bev; Barry Leonard of Monroe as Lou; Alana Caraccio of Doylestown, Pa., as Vanessa; Tom Chiola of Trenton as Bryce; Christopher Schmalbach of Palmyra as Fist; Samantha Otto of Langhorne, Pa., as Fiona; and Marc Suznovich of Hamilton as Marvin.

The production team includes producer Marge Swider, director Liz Wurtz, stage manager Lauren Donahoe, set designer John Maurer and costumer Anthony Remer. Lighting design is by M. Kitty Getlik and sound design is by Dan Braeckman.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors and $14 for students/children. Tickets may be purchased online at www.KelseyTheatre.net or by calling 609-570-3333.
