The Wedding Singer is a fun musical based on the 1998 film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. Set in 1985 in New Jersey the show features new music written for the show rather than the 80s hits heard in the film. The show needs a strong cast for both principals and ensemble.
Rock star wannabe Robbie Heart is New Jersey’s most in-demand wedding singer as “love is what I do”. However, when his own wedding plans go down the pan and he is left standing at the altar, Robbie’s heartbreak and grief suddenly make him the worst wedding singer you can find. He ruins every wedding he plays at until he connects with Julia, a pretty young waitress who dreams of her own perfect wedding. There’s just one problem: she’s already engaged to Glen, a rich, shallow Wall Street broker. Despite Robbie and Julia’s growing feelings, a series of miscommunications lead them away from each other. When Julia elopes with Glen to Las Vegas, Robbie decides to play the gig of his life to win her heart and her hand in marriage.
