AUDITIONS

The Wedding Singer

Music by Matthew Sklar

Book by Chad Beguelin & Tim Herlihy

Lyrics by Chad Beguelin

 

Based on the New Line Cinema film written by Tim Herlihy

The Wedding Singer takes us back to 1985 when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room! Rock star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer until his own devastating heartbreak threatens to ruin his career. But his hope is renewed when he meets Julia, a waitress dreaming of her own perfect wedding to Glen, a Wall Street shark. As this new friendship blossoms into something more, Robbie must decide whether to pull off the performance of his life or lose the girl of his dreams forever. Based on the hit 1998 Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer features a Tony-nominated score, dazzling dance numbers, and non-stop laughs!
