Following standing ovations, widespread acclaim and extended seasons in Adelaide and Melbourne, the Australian professional premiere of the hilarious hit Broadway musical The Wedding Singer, will open to Queensland audiences on Wednesday June 16 at the Gold Coast’s Home of the Arts (HOTA).
The critically-acclaimed lead cast of The Wedding Singer includes Kinky Boots star Teagan Wouters as Julia, the role Drew Barrymore made famous, starring alongside Christian Charisiou in his big break in the title role of jilted-groom and nice guy Robbie Hart. One of the original Jersey Boys Stephen Mahy (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Saturday Night Fever, Mamma Mia!) personifies Wall Street poster boy Glen Guglia, Nadia Komazec brings all of the cheeky laughs as the rebellious Holly, Ed Deganos (The Lion King) plays the iconic George and celebrated character performer Susan-ann Walker thrills as Robbie’s naughty beat-boxing Grandma Rosie. Rounding out the cast is true triple threat Kirby Burgess (Barnum, Dirty Dancing) wowing as Robbie’s villainous ex-girlfriend Linda, joined by dynamite talent Hollie James (Shrek the Musical, Rocky Horror Show) as Angie, and Haydan Hawkins (Miss Saigon, Into The Woods) as Sammy.
The Tony nominated musical is directed by Multi-Green Room Award nominated director Alister Smith, with an incredible original soundtrack brought to life by Musical Director Daniel Puckey (Muriel’s Wedding The Musical, The Book of Mormon, The Wizard of Oz, The Bodyguard Musical, The Lion King).
Come join the party and celebrate all the fun of the ‘80s!
