Hit musical comedy “The Wedding Singer” coming to TROY’s Davis Theatre

Posted: Monday, 25 January 2010

MONTGOMERY—Troy University’s Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts will host the romantic musical comedy “The Wedding Singer” on Thursday, Feb. 4, at 7 p.m.

Based on the hit 1998 film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, this 80’s musical will take audience members back to a time when pastel was in, hair was big and the wedding singer was the coolest guy in the room.

Tickets for the performance are on sale now at the Davis Theatre office. Single tickets range in price from $20 to $45.

“The Wedding Singer” tells the story of Robbie Hart, New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. Robbie has a desire to find the right girl and settle down, but when he finds her and she leaves him at the altar, he becomes broken-hearted and a wedding planner’s worst nightmare, taking out his bitterness on stage. Every wedding he plays is a disaster until a charming waitress named Julia wins his affections. The only trouble is, she is about to be married and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of his lifetime, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

For more information regarding ticket availability, call the theatre at 334-241-9567. Office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday, 8 a.m. to noon.

“The Wedding Singer” is sponsored by WSFA 12 News and Leslie Bailey’s Silver Spoon Caterers.
