The Wedding Singer Performances April 13-28

Book by Chad Beguelin and Tim Herlihy
Music by Matthew Sklar
Lyrics by Chad Beguelin

Director: Michael Rostek
Music Director: John-Michael d’Haviland
Choreographer: Jody Woodruff

The year is 1985.  The place is New Jersey.  A wannabe rock star (aka a professional wedding singer) is left at the altar and finally changes his tune.  The Wedding Singer is based on the 1998 hit movie of the same name.  Written by Tim Herlihy and directed by Frank Coraci, the romantic comedy starred Adam Sandler as a wedding singer in the 1980s and Drew Barrymore as a waitress with whom he falls in love.  Both characters are engaged, but to the wrong people. Fortune intervenes to help them discover each other.  A true testament to realized love set amidst the backdrop of the electrifying 80s.  We’re looking to cast the 8 named characters as well as 5 men and 5 women to fill out the dance-heavy ensemble.  Everyone auditioning will be required to dance.

FOR THE AUDITION: Your audition song should showcase the range and quality of your voice.  It is more important to present a song that you sing well and are connected to that fits the style of the show.  The vocal audition sides provided are optional.  FOR MEN “It’s Your Wedding Day” OR “Someone Kill Me”.  FOR WOMEN “Someday” OR “Let Me Come Home”.   No a cappella auditions please.  After you schedule your audition time, we will send you the sheet music for your chosen song.  Please bring a tracked accompaniment as no audition pianist will be provided.  Please also bring clothes you can move in as everyone auditioning will be asked to complete the dance combination.  

CASTING NOTES:

All roles are available and nothing has been precast.  Actors will be paid a stipend.  Non-union.  This is an adult casting call.  While it is not expected for the guys in the band to be able to play the instrument that their character plays, it is a plus if you have a working knowledge of said instrument.  This show will be tracked.
