Savannah’s problem: Mama won’t fly. With only four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama’s vintage sedan. As Savannah steels herself for this hastily conceived road trip, another outrageous complication arises: the bubbly, over-eager bride-to-be arrives unannounced. Hayley Quinn, delighted to finally meet her future in-laws, is convinced that travelling together to her wedding is the perfect way to bond. The folly of her decision quickly becomes apparent when the journey begins and comedic chaos ensues. Every conceivable—and inconceivable—mishap that can occur does, including the theft of their car and all their clothes, a near-fatal encounter at an underwear museum, the accidental homicide of an ancient Texas relative, a mad dash across the desert in a hijacked eighteen-wheeler and a riotous detour to Vegas that ends in a brawl with an ordained showgirl/minister.

All the characters are wishing for something, and some are willing to do whatever it takes to make those wishes come true. But, actions have consequences—even in Happily Ever After. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility, compassion in a menacing world, and the examples we set for the children around us. Funny, dark, lively, adventurous, and beautiful—this show will leave you spellbound! The doors open a half hour before the show starts.
