Photo Flash: Theatre Three Presents THE WEDDING SINGER
Take a trip back to the 1980s, a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were popped, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer'sscore is one of the best in the last ten years!
It's 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party, until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who steals his attention. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of the decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
"I was drawn to this show because of its upbeat, smart and melodic score. People will be tapping their toes and they will definitely leave the theatre humming these songs," says director Bruce R. Coleman. "Even with its biting, satiric edge, there is a sweet heart at the musical's center that people will fall in love with. It's so much fun to look back at the 80s and revisit all of the things that we thought were so cool."
The Wedding Singer is directed by Theatre Three Acting Artistic Director Bruce Coleman with musical direction by Mark Mullino and choreography by Kelly McCain. The show stars Cameron Cobb (Robbie Hart), Katie Moyes Williams (Julia Sullivan), Gregory Lush (Sammy), Jacob Lewis (Glen Guglia), Alex Heika (George), Lois Leftwich (Rosie/Angie) Nikki Cloer (Holly) and Samantha Padilla (Linda), with an ensemble featuring Mikey Abrams, Tyler Jeffrey Adams, Dominique Brinkley, Quintin Jones, Taylor Nash, Mark Quach and Shannon Walsh.
