“I think any true child of the 80s will enjoy the show,” said one member cast Britney McKiernan, 18, of Memphis. “It’s really nostalgic with all the costumes. He has a really great soundtrack “.
Port Huron Civic Theatre opens its 2010-11 season with the musical – based on the 1998 movie starring Adam Sandler. It is presented today, Saturday and Sunday at McMorran Auditorium.
Other presentations this season are “Disney’s 101 Dalmatians Kids” comedy “Game Night,” Mel Brooks’ The Producers “and the musical” The Wiz. ”
“The Wedding Singer” which appeared on Broadway in 2006, has the same storyline as the movie, but the original music by Matthew Sklar and lyrics by Chad Béguelin.
Set in 1985, it tells the story of the wedding of Robbie Hart, who is the life of the party – until he left at the altar at his own wedding.
It is a romantic comedy “that will make you laugh and cry,” director Mark Meier said.
“This is a very entertaining show,” he said. “Lots of dancing, lots of songs. The dances are amazing.”
McKiernan, who made his first appearance with the Civic Theatre production, said the show would probably appeal to everyone.
She plays Holly’s best friend and cousin of the main female character, Julia.
“I think it might be a good music for people who do not like musicals,” said McKiernan. “It has many very funny parts.”
It may not be suitable for young children, however. Meier said that the show should be rated PG-13 because of an oath.
Charlie Tinker, 21, of Marysville has enjoyed being a part of the production. He plays Sammy, the bass player in the group-wedding singer.
“I love this show,” he said. “I listen to the tape non-stop.”
Tinker said her favorite moment of the series is a song called “unique”, a lively, irreverent look at the joys of being single.
“I like the feel of it,” he said. “This is a really fun number. It is a little higher, but I love him. ”
He said the company has worked hard. The group of 31 has been rehearsing for about nine weeks.
“It’s something we’re all really excited and really,” said Tinker. “It’s really come together in recent weeks.”
Meier agrees. “It was a nice smooth ride,” he said. “Everyone worked very hard.”
