It’s 1985, and rock star wannabe Robbie Heart (who still lives in his grandmother’s basement) is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party until his fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie is so distraught that he makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. When he meets Julia, an admiring young waitress, Robbie falls madly in love.

With a score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the ‘80s, Morgan-Wixson Theatre’s production of The Wedding Singer takes you back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just have been the coolest guy in the room.
