Regarded as one of the nation’s best regional theaters, The Wagon Wheel Theatre’s professional productions have been a marriage of excellence spanning 58 years. What better way to celebrate the Wagon Wheel Theatre’s 400th professional production than a cleverly funny show about marriage and commitment, “The Wedding Singer,” running through Saturday, July 27.
“The Wedding Singer” is set in 1985 and Robbie Hart is a professional entertainer who lives with his Grandma Rosie in New Jersey. He makes his living singing and playing with his band at wedding receptions. After he publicly announces his own wedding day, his fiancé dumps him at the altar. Based on the original motion picture starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, “The Wedding Singer” opened on Broadway in 2006 and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Musical.
Staged by award-winning Artistic Director Scott Michaels, “The Wedding Singer” is 1980s nostalgia at its best. The show is lively, funny and heartwarming. The Wagon Wheel Theatre is committed to staging the newest shows as well as the classics.
Tickets range from $16-$34. Discounts are available for college students and on designated performances for seniors.
