The story of a marriage is at the center of I DO! I DO! - an intimate and nostalgic work by Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones (THE FANTASTICKS).

The show begins with Michael and Agnes on their wedding day. Their vows behind them, they look forward to spending the rest of their lives together. We watch as they go through their wedding night jitters, raise a family, and negotiate mid-life crises. Michael eventually admits to his infidelity, and although Agnes is angered by his actions, she forgives him and the couple reconciles. They re-discover how much they really need each other. Then, after 50 years of marriage, the couple leaves their house to the next pair of newlyweds.

This touching story of two soul mates navigating the perils of life is set to the strains of a tuneful, charming score. With minimal set and costume requirements, this show is ideal for regional theatre companies on a limited budget and smaller troupes.
