Worcester – Worcester-based Moonstruck Theater Company is pleased to present five-time Tony award nominee, The Wedding Singer, opening Friday, Aug. 10, and running for seven productions through Aug. 19. Performances take place at The Andes Pit Theater, Worcester Academy, 81 Providence St., Worcester.

Based on the hilarious 1998 comedy starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, The Wedding Singer is the totally radical story of 1985 New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer, Robbie Hart, whose life takes a turn for the worst after he is stood up at the altar at his own wedding. That is, until he meets the ever-sweet Julia, but alas, she’s already engaged to Glen Guglia, a pompous Wall Street shark.  With catchy tunes and energetic dancing, it’s sure to be a party every night.  The film is brought to life on stage with music by Matthew Sklar and lyrics by Chad Beguelin.

The production features 16 teens and adults from all over the Metrowest, including Keith Caram and Laura Girard of Hudson; Alex Pappas of Bolton; Caroline Fonseca, Evan Fonseca, Shannon Hinkley, Jonathan McCauley, and Brianna McGrath, all of Marlborough; and Halli Lieberman of Northborough. The show is directed by Matthew Sherman, music directed by Jessica West, and choreographed by Caroline Fonseca. The production will be presented at Worcester Academy’s Andes Pit Theatre.

Tickets are $17 general admission and $12 for senior citizens and students. For tickets, reservations, and more information, visit www.moonstrucktheater.org or call 508-251-9224.
