Musical to Offer Free Marriage Ceremony

"If you cannot have a wedding ceremony because of moeny, try calling us. We will make a stage for you."

The musical "I do, I do" (originally written by Tom Jones, composed by Harvey Schmidt) will offer a unique event as part of its performance. At the beginning of the play, the company will allow members of the audience to participate in the play as the bride and groom. The play will offer the stage for free to any couple that was unable to get married because of a lack of money.

The musical shows the life of a couple beginning from the day of marriage and ending in the golden years.

Theater company PMC is planning a variety of events in conjunction with the performance, including a second wedding ceremony for elderly couples and a rehearsal ceremony for couples planning to get married. On the opening night of the musical, renowned playwright Cha Pom-sok and his wife will play the part of the couple getting married. The Cha couple will celebrate their golden anniversary with the second wedding ceremony.

Spokesperson of the PMC, Park Hong-mi, said, "The musical portrays the happiness of family life, so we decided to use happy families. About 30 couples have applied for the event." The musical opens on June 1 and runs through June 27 at Dongsung Art Center. For more information, call 02-3443-3016.
