Auditions for Stage 1
It's 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Heart, who still lives in his grandmother's basement, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his fiancee Linda, leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own.
When he meets Julia, an admiring young waitress, Robbie falls madly in love. The problem...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. With a score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, "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.
Prepare 16 bars of a show tune that best shows your range and 16 bars of an 80's rock song. Cold read with New Jersey accent, be ready to dance. Please bring a headshot or recent photograph and rehearsal conflicts.
Callbacks will be held on Saturday April 9 at 11 a.m. Performances are Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays July 15-July 30.
Meet and greet on April 17 at 7 p.m. with vocal rehearsals starting on May 16. Rehearsals are Monday-Thursday with some Saturday dance rehearsals.
