Synopsis: Sara Hastings is an unmarried lawyer in her mid-thirties, much too busy to get involved in any
romance. Her Aunt Martha has decided to take matters into her own hands and find her a husband.
Unfortunately, Aunt Martha’s method of doing it amounts to having the prospective groom bopped over the
head and brought to Sara’s apartment. Aunt Martha’s choice is Brandon Cates, a young man who handles
her finances. Although Brandon is already engaged to be married, this does not deter Aunt Martha. After
being bopped on the head a few times, having a temporary loss of memory and experiencing several instances
of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and a confrontation with a very angry fiancé, Brandon slowly comes to
realize that Sara is really the girl for him.

Weighing in at 6 lbs 13 ounces. There are some great pictures of little Sabrina on
Rose's FB page. Rose and Craig met during the production of An Ideal Husband at
PLT. I wonder if the play title gives Craig any extra pressure? Here's to an ideal family!
Becky and Bernie Sandner are expecting a baby girl in the near future. This couple
met during the production of First Kisses at PLT. Lots of love and kisses to the whole
Sandner family from PLT!
