17 Jul


If you ever wanted to take in all the beauty that is a Bollywood Wedding, now is your chance. South Asian Arts is putting on an elaborate outdoor theatrical show in the PNE’s Italian Gardens starting today.   This is an interactive theatre event in which two young Indians are brought together in an arranged marriage.  The audience moves from one location to another as various scenes are played out such as the engagement, mehndi (henna), maiyan (a cleansing ceremony done to purify the individuals getting married) and milni (the meeting of all the men from each family) and then the wedding itself. The performance ends with a big interactive dance party at the wedding reception.  The wedding is being performed in true Bollywood fashion. It will be  colourful  as well as  extravagant with beautiful clothing, some serious drama and lots of dancing.  The cast consists of 12 characters as well as a dazzling dance team. The event gets under way at 8:00 p.m. tonight and runs until July 28th.  Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for seniors and children under 12. Tickets are available at  This is your invitation to see the most unique wedding of the year!
