June 8, 2021
Big hair and shoulder pads at the ready – It’s time to rediscover the 80’s! Your favorite Adam Sandler movie in musical form takes the stage in Blackburn Hall at The Naples Players from June 23rd-July 25th. The Wedding Singer’s sparkling new score does for the ‘80s what Hairspray did for the ‘60s.
Things are going pretty well for wedding singer Robbie Hart (Joseph Byrne) until he’s left at the altar by his fiancé, Linda (Erica Sample). As he struggles to pick up the pieces and continue performing at other people’s weddings, he befriends Julia Sullivan (Alyssa Haney). Julia is preparing for her wedding to long term boyfriend Glen (David Shaffer) – whose commitment to their relationship is questionable, to say the least. Robbie agrees to help Julia plan her wedding when complications arise and the two spend more and more time with each other…
With fan-favorite director and choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara and musical director Charles Fornara at the helm of this production, you will certainly be dancing in your seat. To get your tickets, click the button below:
