The Oklahoma State University Department of Theatre is producing "The Wedding Singer"
later this month. The musical begins at 7:30 p.m. April 21 in the Vivia Nail Locke
Theatre in the Seretean Center for the Performing Arts.
The plot takes place in 1985 and rock star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull of the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
“It's big, the cast is big, the costumes are big, the lights are going to be big. Something I've told the cast and something that I keep coming back to is that this is the show that's built to be turned up to 11, and so that's what we're bringing in terms of the energy, in terms of the sound. It's just a really great celebration of everything that was big and bold, that people love and hate about that decade,” said Devon Hunt, assistant professor of musical theatre and director of the musical.
There will be four shows. Showtimes are: 7:30 p.m on April 21 and 22; 2 p.m. on April
23 and 24. Theatre students not only perform, they help build the sets, sew the costumes
and more. Come ready for a good time, but don’t be surprised if you find a lot of
heart underneath all of the glitz and glamour and beyond of this 1980s love letter
production, Hunt said.
