Big hair, slap bands and fluro clothes- welcome to the 80s
The Wedding Singer The Musical has officially opened in Melbourne at the Athenaeum Theatre from now until June 5th, following the announcement of a season extension.
Based on the popular rom-com movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, this musical has brought everything that was fun and quirky about the '80s to the stage.
Bright, colourful and so much fun, The Wedding Singer- The Musical is now in Melbourne.
An absolute crowd-pleaser with so many throwbacks to the 80s, this musical is perfect for a day out in the city or a date night alike.
Following a year when Melbourne's art scene has been oh-so-quiet, the city has seen a huge surge of live performances, bringing energy back to the city. The Wedding Singer is a much-needed hit of colour and delight to the city.
If you're looking to attend with family, the show's probably most suitable for children over 12. Take a sneak peek and meet some of the Australian cast members by clicking below:
Created by the writer of the original movie, this musical has everything you love about the film and more. Hilarious feel-good comedy, great music and all the nostalgia of the '80s.
Following sold-out performances on Broadway and across the UK, The Wedding Singer features your favourite characters, and a sparkling new soundtrack that does for the 80's what Hairspray did for the '60s.
Bringing back everything that's wild and wonderful about the 80s, The Wedding Singer is a great day out.
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.
It's joyful, fun and best of all offers plenty to sing along with. The Wedding Singer is on until June 5.
