THE WEDDING SINGER
In August 2017, YOBOS welcomed a new production team as they took on The Wedding Singer for their 15th anniversary production. The show, put together as always in just one week, involved over 40 talented young performers and theatre technicians and was an outstanding display of skills. The show proved to be a hit with audiences and members!
It's 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Heart, who still lives in his grandmother's basement, is New Jersey's favoUrite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his fiance, Linda, leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie is so distraught that he makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. When he meets an Julia, an admiring young waitress, Robbie falls madly in love. 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 a 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 have been the coolest guy in the room
