Get into the music and the party spirit of the 1980s
Get ready to party like it's 1985 when the classic musical comedy The Wedding Singer is performed in Tamworth at the beginning of April. Tamworth Musical Theatre Company (formerly known as Tamworth Arts Club) presents this hit production set more than 30 years ago when hair is huge, greed is good and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favourite wedding singer. He's the life of the party, until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie sets out to make every wedding as disastrous as his own - until, that is, he meets a naïve waitress called Julia who wins his affection. Only trouble is Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, leaving Robbie determined to pull off the performance of a decade and win the girl of his dreams.
Music and comedy await in The Wedding Singer
This romantic musical pays, which pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, is guaranteed to get audiences singing along and joining in the party when The Wedding Singer is performed at Landau Forte Academy Theatre from April 4 to April 7. Tamworth Borough Council's Arts and Events team have been working hard to create a new and varied line up of shows and acts for Tamworth families and visitors to enjoy over the coming months and while the town's historic Assembly Rooms theatre undergoes a major refurbishment. This includes more Assembly Rooms on Tour, taking some of the theatre's favourite performers out into community locations, such as Landau Forte Academy, and popular seasonal outdoor events. Councillor Robert Pritchard, Deputy Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, said: "The Wedding Singer is a popular musical, a big hit with all 80's pop music lovers. I know that Tamworth Musical Theatre Company will provide audiences with an energetic and fun show."
