At Peter and Rita’s wedding, a mysterious old man insists on kissing the bride. While honeymooning, Peter gradually realizes that the woman by his side is not his wife. The wedding kiss caused Rita’s soul and the old man’s to change places. Peter must track down the old man and free his young love’s spirit trapped in an aging and diseased body before it’s too late!
“There is farcical humor in this mismatch of course, and both Mann and Cawthorne do a marvelous job channeling very different personalities… Overall, the production is elevated by heartfelt performances by the three leads, and blocking by director Erin S. Baal that effectively uses every corner of the Evjue Stage… Instead of buying flowers or candy to celebrate Valentine’s Day, take your date to see Prelude to a Kiss. There’s a lot to learn from Langenecker’s charming Peter, who compares love to an unpredictable roller coaster — one that everyone must ride at their own risk.” – Isthmus
