The Wedding Singer
It is 1985, hair is huge, greed is good and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favourite wedding singer until his own fiancée Linda dumps him at the altar, then Casualty of Love Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own.
Sweet natured Julia dreams of Someday marrying Wall Street bad boy Glen, while her best friend Holly wants to enjoy Saturday Night in the City – just not with Sammy her ex. Can they convince Robbie to Come out of the Dumpster and back into the limelight, or will Robbie be persuaded by Glen that life is All About the Green. Grandma Rosie seems to know who the perfect pairings are, but will they realise in time to say ‘I want to Grow Old With You’?
The Wedding Singer – The Musical, with all the fun and energy of the Adam Sandler smash hit film, will get you up and dancing faster than your dad at a wedding!

The Wedding Singer – Review by Moira Cormack
The Bohemians breath fresh life into the Wedding Singer. The two main characters give fine performances as Robbie, Fraser Jamieson, and Julia, Katherine Croan. They have fine voices and were a pleasure to watch. It was easy too believe they were attracted to each other.They were supported by Sammy and George, and Holly and Linda but also by Rosie, Robbie’s Gran. The audience had a decided soft spot for feisty Rosie played by 26 year old, Cathy Geddie.
As the anti hero Linda brought some sass with her.The off again on again romances between the characters show with precision the mind games we play over love.
!It was a very enjoyable evening lively music, song and dance.
