Auburn Community Players present: Wedding Singer, the Musical
Auburn Ave. Theater, 10 Auburn Avenue 

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. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer is likely the most romantic musical in the last twenty years. 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. 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.

Tickets: $15 regular; $13 student/senior. Call Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation at 253-931-3043, Monday-Thursday, Friday, 7:00 AM-12:00 PM; or order online for Will-Call only pickup at Brown Paper Tickets.
