All proceeds from this event will help the Humane Society raise awareness and financial support for the hundreds of “unwanted and abandoned” animals that visit their facilities each year, who need a safe and loving new “forever” home.

The Humane Society’s adoption centers are “no kill for space”, and they do not receive any “financial support” from your tax dollars. All of their funding comes through donations, services (pet adoptions, products & cremations) fundraisers and Molly Mutt Thrift Shops (Palm Bay, Melbourne, Rockledge, Merritt Island & Titusville).

Mix in a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not so bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you’ve got a show soup dense with delicious delight!
