The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer’ssparkling new score does for the ’80s what Hairspray did for the ’60s. Just say yes to the most romantic musical in twenty 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 fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. 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 a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.



Audition information:

 
During each audition night, there will be 3 different parts to the audition process. You only have to attend 1 audition night, not all three, in order to be cast. Please note you MUST be 18 years or older to audition. We are looking to cast up to 30 people.
 
Vocal Auditions: Please be prepared to sing around one minute of a vocal selection that you feel best showcases your talent. This will be a closed audition with you only singing in front of key production staff members. Please make sure your music is clearly marked with stop and start points and any cuts. Sheet music must be in the key you will be singing (no transposition). A capella auditions are discouraged.
 
Dance Auditions: There will be a dance audition each night that will be mandatory for all who are auditioning. Please bring appropriate clothes and shoes for the auditions (no jeans, flip flops, etc)
 
Read Through Auditions: Each person auditioning will be asked to read through select scenes from the show. Selected scenes will be passed out on the night of your audition. Please focus on articulation, projection and show us your character!
 
Call backs will be conducted Wednesday night after the normal audition process for that evening is complete. This will include singing selections of songs from the show for specific roles and/or additional readings. If you are selected for a call back you will be provided a music selection.
