About The Wedding Singer

It’s 1985. Hair is big, collars are up, and a Wedding Singer is the coolest guy in the room.

Based on the smash-hit Hollywood movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, comes a hilarious musical comedy that celebrates all the fun of the 80’s. 

Following seasons on Broadway and across the UK, this feel-good musical 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?

Come join the party and just say YES to this joyful, romantic musical!
