The Wedding Singer is back on tour with a star cast and an exciting production team.
Based on the 1998 film of the same name, this hilarious romantic comedy bursts to life from the opening moments and is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish.
Ruth Madoc stars as Rosie, the eccentric grandmother full of (sometimes questionable) advice. She is a perfect casting and provides some hilarious moments. Her facial expressions alone are enough to leave you chuckling to yourself long afterwards.
Samuel Holmes puts in a show stealing performance as George and is a joy to watch throughout.
Leads Robbie Hart and Julia Sullivan, played by Jon Robyns and Cassie Compton are polished, sweet and endearing. Well suited to their roles, they grow on you very quickly. You are certainly rooting for the characters to get together as the show goes on.
Each character was strong and each company member fully utilised throughout (including some stunning dance routines) – masterfully Directed and Choreographed by Nick Winston. Each member is deserving of a mention. For example, Tara Verloop was fierce as rock-chick Linda, Ray Quinn was ever cool and classy as Glen Guglia and Roxanne Pallett impressed as Holly particularly in her solo number ‘Saturday night in the City’ which brought Act One to an electric close.
The staging is cool and modern whilst retaining it’s 80s feel. Set changes are slick and clever.
This production will go from strength to strength and delight audiences everywhere it goes. Musical fans, get ready to enjoy.
The Wedding Singer plays Leicester Curve until Saturday 18th February before touring to a further 31 venues, so plenty of opportunities to see it at a theatre near you. To book tickets visit curveonline.co.uk and for full tour details visit theweddingsingermusical.co.uk.
