Actors and county leaders put on performance of Wilmington’s Big Greek Wedding
It was a celebrity who’s who on stage Friday night at Thalian Hall.
The Phoenix Employment Ministry put on a production of Wilmington’s Big Greek Wedding.
Cast members included State Representative Danny McComas, New Hanover County Commissioners Ted Davis and Jonathan Barfield, City Councilman Kristi Tomey, and UNCW Athletic Director Kelly Mehrtens, just to name a few.
Wilmington’s Big Greek Wedding on Friday night was elaborate as they come. Everyone who had a chance to dress in drag did. Men dressed up as women and women dressed up as men.
Jeff Daniels was a hit playing the lead role of the head vestal virgin, but he was definitely in good company. It was a mix of experienced actors and New Hanover County community leaders.
Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo played the role of grandmother of the bride. Mayor Saffo had the wardrobe thing down pat; the hat, the mink stole and even the dress.
