‘Til Beth Do Us Part @ Beaver Island Community Center
Apr 27 – Apr 28 all-day

The Beaver Island Community return to the stage this spring with a hilarious romp through the mysteries of marriage. Suzannah Hayden needs more help on the home front than she’s getting from her husband, Gibby. Enter Beth Bailey, Suzannah’s newly-hired assistant, Beth explodes into the Hayden household and whips it into a well-run machine. This couldn’t have happened at a better time for Suzannah, since her boss, Celia Carmichael, the C.E.O. of Carmichael’s Chocolates, is flying in for an important make-or-break business dinner. Suzannah gives Beth carte blanche to change anything in the household that “will make it run more efficiently.” And the change Beth makes is that Gibby must go! When he realizes it’s Suzannah’s career Beth is really after, a newly-determined Gibby sets out to save his marriage.

Join your favorite island actors and actresses for a great evening or afternoon of fun at the BIC Center.
