HoW College students say ‘I do’ to new musical
Performing arts students from Heart of Worcestershire College are preparing to say ‘I do’ to their latest venture as they take to the stage in the end of year musical comedy ‘The Wedding Singer’.
Taking place at Bromsgrove’s premier arts venue, Artrix, from 11th-12th May, ‘The Wedding Singer’ tells the story of rock-star wannabe Robbie Heart, New Jersey's favourite wedding singer, who still lives in his grandmother's basement.
Robbie is the life of the party until his fiancée, Linda, leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie is so distraught that he makes every wedding as disastrous as his own until he meets Julia, an admiring young waitress, who Robbie falls madly in love with. The only trouble is that Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of his life, 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 have been the coolest guy in the room.
Performances will take place at 7:30pm with an additional matinee performance at 12:30pm on 12 May. Tickets cost £10 (£8 cons) and are available from Artrix Box Office on 01527 577330 or via the website www.artrix.co.uk
