It’s 1985. Hair is huge, collars are up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.
By the writer of the original smash-hit movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, come this hilarious feel-good musical that celebrates all the fun of the 80’s.
Remember cassette players, ATARI, slap bands and outrageous hair? It’s time to dust off your 80s best and get ready for some all-out fun!
Following sold out performances on Broadway and across the UK, The Wedding Singer features your favourite characters, and a sparkling new soundtrack that does for the 80’s what hairspray did for the 60’s.
Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s number one wedding singer and the life of the party. That is until his own fiancee strands him at the altar. Bitter and broken, Robbie begins to make every wedding as disastrous as his own until a warm-hearted waitress named Julia intervenes. Only trouble is, Julia’s about to be-you guessed it-married! Can Robbie pull off the performance of the decade and win the girl of his dreams?
The Wedding Singer features music by Matthew Sklar (Elf The Musical), lyrics by Chad Beguelin (Aladdin), and a book by Beguelin and Tim Herlihy. A long-time collaborator of Adam Sandler, Tim wrote the classic hit films Happy Gilmore and Billy Maddison, as well as several other Sandler-starring blockbusters in addition to The Wedding Singer.
Come join the party and just say YES to the most joyful, romantic musical in years.
