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.

Set in 1985, rock star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection.

About the Auburn Avenue Theater:
For over 30 years, the Auburn Avenue Theater has presented a diversity of live performances, including Broadway musicals, mystery theater, children's theater, and concerts. The Douglas family, producers of the fine dinner theater featured at the Auburn Avenue Theater for over 20 years, leased the venue to the City of Auburn to continue operating as a performing arts space. In 2007, The City of Auburn reopened the venue, expanding this time-honored tradition of live, quality performing arts, variety entertainment, children's shows, dance and music, right in the heart of downtown Auburn.
History in the Making:
The theater building itself is over 80 years old, however, the first structure to occupy the property over 100 years ago was a carriage house for horses. When the automobile replaced horses as the major mode of transportation, the building was entirely reconstructed as the city's bus depot. New owners converted it to a movie house in the 1940s and continued operating it as such until the mid-70s, when it underwent yet another conversion, this time as a performing arts theater venue.
