The Wedding Singer
17th - 21st October 2023
It’s 1985 and rock star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favourite wedding singer. He’s the life and soul of the party until Linda, his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Heartbroken and inconsolable, Robbie goes on to make every wedding as disastrous as his own. Julia Sullivan, a waitress at the Reception Hall, gradually wins his affection. As luck would have it though, Julia is about to be married to Glen, a ruthless Wall Street shark. Determined to be more like Glen, Robbie takes a job working for Glen. When Julia and Glen elope to Las Vegas, Robbie goes in search of them determined to stop the wedding. Robbie needs to pull off the performance of a decade and unless he can do so, the girl of his dreams will be out of reach forever. The Wedding Singer is based on the 1998 comedy film directed by Frank Coraci, written by Tim Herlihy and produced by Robert Simonds and Jack Giarraputo. It starred Adam Sandler as Robbie and Drew Barrymore as Julia.
The stage adaptation of the same name features the music of composer Matthew Sklar and lyricist Chad Beguelin. The show debuted on Broadway in April 2006 and enjoyed a run of 284 performances, touring in 2007-2008 and 2009-2010 respectively, before going on to tour internationally. It was nominated for five Tony Awards, which included “Best Musical” and “Best Original Score” and eight Drama Desk Awards including “Outstanding Musical". This show has everything you could wish for. Big 80’s ensemble numbers sit alongside endearingly romantic ballads and tongue in cheek comedy. The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, and as all a girl wanted to do was to get married - the Wedding Singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.
