It’s 1985 and wannabe rock star Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favourite wedding singer. He’s the life and soul of every party. That is, until his own fiancée unceremoniously leaves him at the altar. Truly heartbroken, Robbie’s misery is contagious, and every wedding he plays is now as disastrous as his own.
Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who steals his heart and could truly be the person to turn around Robbie’s misfortunes. There’s just one problem: Julia is about to marry one of Wall Street’s most successful and ruthless businessmen. Unless Robbie can pull off the performance of the decade, the girl of his dreams may be gone forever….
Based on the 1998 movie of the same name, The Wedding Singer has a sparkling new musical score, which does for the 80s what Hairspray did for the 60s. Expect shoulder pads, gallons of hair gel and more than a few homages to songs of the 80s.
You can get your groove on every night between Wednesday 6th and Saturday 9th November at the Stockwell Playhouse.
Tickets are now on sale, with an early bird rate of £13 until Monday 14th October. After the 14th October, tickets will be £16.
