The Company has recently completed auditions for performers aged 13-23 from across the UK hoping to take part in the hit musical comedy 'THE WEDDING SINGER'!

 

This exciting production will take to the stage at The Lowry in Media City, Salford from 7-9 August 2014 this year. You will work with inspiring industry professionals and follow in the footsteps of alumni who have gone on to appear in West End productions such as Spring Awakening, Mamma Mia, The Sound of Music, Loserville and Ghost.

 

The Wedding Singer is the story of rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart, the life of the party until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own, until he meets Julia, a winsome waitress who soon wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.
