Break out your crimpers and powder blue tuxedos as Musical Theatre Productions heads back to the 80s with THE WEDDING SINGER! Based on the hilarious hit film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore and featuring songs that hearken back to your favourite 80s artists, we cordially invite you to just say yes to the most romantic musical comedy of the decade.
THE WEDDING SINGER 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.
It's 1985, and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer and 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.
Featuring songs by the team behind the musical Elf, Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, THE WEDDING SINGER received 5 Tony Award nominations including Best Musical and Best Original Score. Be sure to join Robbie Hart and his band when they come to the McManus Stage at the Grand Theatre February 1-9, 2019 as Musical Theatre Productions celebrates its 30th Anniversary Season.
Subscription packages for MTP’s 2018-2019 season are available including HELLO, DOLLY!, THE WEDDING SINGER and the dinner and show package of SHOW OFF: 30 Years of Musical Theatre for only $95!
