 “An outrageously hilarious race against the clock begins when Savannah Sprunt Fairchild Honeycutt agrees to get her feisty mother from Alabama to California in time for her brother’s wedding,” a theater news release sums up of the storyline. “Savannah’s problem: Mama won’t fly. With only four days to make it to the ceremony, this determined daughter has no choice but to drive cross-country with her equally willful mother, Norleen Sprunt, in Mama’s vintage sedan.”

Tickets available by calling the box office at 623-237-3037, by visiting WestbrookVillagePac.com, or at the door.
