SACRAMENTO — It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Heart, who still lives in his grandmother’s basement, is new Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party until his fiancée Linda leaves him at the altar.
Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. When he meets Julia, an admiring young waitress, Robbie falls madly in love. Only trouble is 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.
With a score that pays 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 be the coolest guy in the room.
The multiple Elly Award-winning team of producing Director Bob Baxter and choreographer Darryl Strohl join forces with musical Director Gary Suits and the fabulous RSP resident orchestra to stage this entertaining musical at Runaway Stage, 2791 24th St. in Sacramento
