Here comes the bride: Last minute hitches in best-laid plans.

Blackheath Theatre Company's latest production, Secret Bridesmaid's Business, opens at the Blackheath Community Centre on Thursday, May 16.

The play is an hilarious send up of all the crazy, last minute things which go on (and mostly go wrong) on the eve of family weddings.

It has been written by Australian television writer, Elizabeth Coleman.

The play will be presented in the large Phillips Hall in a highly innovative manner. Audience seats will be raised and the stage will be on the floor, offering safe, unimpeded views of the action. The intimate mini-auditorium will be shrouded with mid-hall curtaining.

Artistic director of the company, David Hobbs, who has been involved with presentations at the hall for more than 15 years, said he believed the format would be something new for Blackheath audiences.

Tickets are available at blackheaththeatrecompany.com or at Century 21 in Blackheath. Performances will be May 16, 17 and 18 at 7:30pm plus 2pm matinees on May 19 and 20.
