FANS of the Adam Sandler comedy The Wedding Singer won’t want to miss the chance to see the new musical version which comes to the Manchester Palace this week.
Remember when hair was big, greed was good and shoulder pads were in? You’ve guessed it, it’s the 80s – the decade that fashion forgot but audiences love to revisit.
Wannabe rock star Robbie Hart is everyone’s favourite Wedding Singer. He’s the life and soul of the party until he gets jilted at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own.
Enter Julia, a waitress who wins his heart – only trouble is, Julia’s about to be married! Can Robbie pull off the performance of the decade and win the girl of his dreams?
The Wedding Singer features television and stage star Jonathan Wilkes, whose theatre credits include the lead roles in The Rocky Horror Show, Tommy and Grease.
Joining him will be Natalie Casey, who has just wowed the West End in Fame and is well known from BBC2’s smash hit comedy Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.
Based on the 1998 blockbuster movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, this hotly anticipated UK premiere direct from Broadway boasts the perfect marriage of hilarious comedy and a sensational score.
Directed by and with spectacular choreography from Karen Bruce, The Wedding Singer will open at The Palace Theatre, Manchester on Friday, February 22 and will tour the UK until July 2008.
