The Wedding Singer

Music: Matthew Sklar, Lyrics: Chad Beguelin, Book: Chad Beguelin & Tim Herlihy

Directed by Katrina Brunner

The Wedding Singer, based on the classic Adam Sandler movie, takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. The Wedding Singer features a large chorus with a variety of featured roles for actors, musicians, singers, and dancers.

It's 1985, and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
