The Wedding Singer – The Musical Comedy
David Venn Enterprises (Bring It On The Musical) is thrilled to announce that Adelaide will be home to the Australian premiere of the Broadway musical, The Wedding Singer in 2021.
From 9 April 2021 , Adelaide audiences will be treated to one of the most feel-good, romantic musicals to hit the boards in decades. Remember cassette players, ATARI, slap bands and outrageous hair? It’s time to dust off your 80s best and get ready for some all-out fun at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
Tickets will be on sale from Monday 7 December 2020.
It’s 1985. Hair is huge, collars are up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Penned by the writer of the original smash-hit movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, The Wedding Singer musical achieved a Tony Award nomination for Best Musical. Following sold out performances on Broadway and across the UK including a recent season on the West End, this feel-good musical features all your favourite characters and a sparkling new soundtrack that does for the 80s what Hairspray did for the 60s.
Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s number one wedding singer and the life of the party. That is until his own fiancée 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?
The Wedding Singer features music by Matthew Sklar (Elf The Musical), lyrics by Chad Beguelin (Aladdin), and a book by Beguelin and Tim Herlihy. A long-time collaborator of Adam Sandler, Tim wrote the classic hit films Happy Gilmore and Billy Maddison, as well as several other Sandler-starring blockbusters in addition to The Wedding Singer.
An Australian cast and creative team will be announced in the new year.
COVID Safe measures will be in place for all performances, as per government regulations. More information regarding COVID practices can be found on the Adelaide Festival Centre’s website.
