3 Male 3 Female

After Warren proposes to Josie, she decides she must make one last attempt to find her long-lost father before she walks down the aisle

What she finds instead is a dangerous, seductive world of secrets and magic

So seductive she may not want to escape

This is a lyrical, haunting, and surprisingly funny fairy tale about children and parents and forgetting and remembering

And the power of a good story to capture us or set us free


"Kristen Palmer crafts a contemporary fairytale that feels timeless. She gives us a classic hero's journey and a variation on princess tales while subtly subverting and exploring classic tropes of the genre. Evil queens, magic spells, true love quests - Palmer touches on all these without patting herself on the back or spelling things out for the audience. She gives Once Upon A Bride a dream-like feeling that weaves its own lyrical spell" ~ Amanda LaPergola, Theatre is Easy

"Palmer weaves a bit of Dark Shadows, a wee bit of Rocky Horror, a flicker of Twilight Zone and even a hint of The Wizard of Oz into a full-length comedy-drama-thriller perfect for a dark night when hopes seem thin" ~ Jon Sobel, BlogCritics
