A Runaway Hit?

From WIStv:

Story of the runaway bride to become rock opera

(Duluth, Ga.-AP) January 26, 2007 - The story of runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks is on its way to a theater in the form of a rock opera.

The show is scheduled to open in October at the Red Clay Theatre and Arts Center in Duluth, Georgia.

Mark Pitt, the theater's owner, says the show will not be a comedic spoof of Wilbanks' infamous disappearance before her scheduled 2005 wedding. Instead, he says the rock opera will show how the community came together and bonded over the experience, which included a massive search for Wilbanks before she turned up a few days later.

Pitt says Wilbanks and her then-fiance, John Mason, will only be minor characters.

Reat the rest here.
