The Wedding Singer wows Audience

St Julian's School 2020 musical production, 'The Wedding Singer' was very well received to a large audience of parents and member of the local community at the school February.

The Drama and Music Departments teamed up to deliver a fantastic events of musical and theatrical performances. As always, Mrs Witts, Mr Edwards and Miss Smith excelled expectations as they conducted a stage show that could once again rival professional versions. 

In addition to the incredibly talented full-student cast, the production was also supported by crew and hospitality teams made by St Julian's students who volunteered their time and skills to the show. These students took it upon themselves to use this opportunity to broaden their creative skills through these crucial, collaborative roles; all that help support the overall achievement.

Paying a loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, 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 have been the coolest guy in the room.

It's 1985 and Robbie Hart, a wannabe rock-star, is New Jersey's favourite wedding singer. He was the life of the party, until his fiancée left him at the altar. Heartbroken, a distraught Robbie decides to make every wedding he performs at just as disastrous as his own.

Then comes along Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. The only problem… she’s getting married to a Wall Street shark. If Robbie doesn’t pull off the performance of the decade, then the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
