Lakewood Theater will kickoff its theater season Thursday, May 23, with “Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses,” at the theater, 76 Theatre Road, in Madison.

Show times are set for 8 p.m. May 23, 24, 25, 30, 31 and June 1, a 4 p.m. show on May 26 and a 2 p.m matinee on May 29.

Audrina Brown has recently inherited Lovers’ Landing Hotel on the Gulf coast, a popular wedding destination. Any moment, Beatrice Rutherford-Smythe, the epitome of New England blue bloods, will arrive with daughter Traci to meet with Madame Coco. Unfortunately, Madame Coco has eloped.

Because this is a farce, the only person who can pretend to be the famed wedding planner is Uncle Bubba, the maintenance man and “Jack-of-all-trades” who has developed a variety of extra-curricular activities which all appear to be illegal. Coerced by Audrina he spends the time alternating between himself and Madame Coco.

Beatrice doesn’t like the locale and more importantly she doesn’t like Traci’s fiance, Peter Mudd … not to be confused with the mysterious Douglas DuPont. Beatrice does like Bubba.

A scatter-brained receptionist, mistaken identities, room number mix-up, bingo, and rum create a roller coaster of events that put the upcoming wedding on shifting sands.

Starring Romy Gerstenberger, Randy Jones, Vicki Gerstenberger, Alicia Nicholls, Kaelie Merrill, Jacob Junkins and Jacob Coombs.

Tickets cost $22-26 for adults, $17-$19 for children, or $32-$35 for cabaret seating.
