"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.

It’s 1985 and 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.

TA newcomer Lane Fields stars as Robbie Hart.  New to the Piedmont, he is not new to the role.  Says Fields, “When I moved to Winston-Salem last year, I knew I had to find a new theater home, and there was no doubt I wanted it be Theater Alliance.  This first performance in NC is going to ‘ROCK!’ with a wonderful cast of dedicated performers.  After 25 years working in professional theater, reprising the role of Robbie is a great chance to get introduced to Winston Salem audiences.”

Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer's sparkling score does for the '80s what Hairspray did for the '60s.  From celebrating the single life to relationships of many decades, The Wedding Singer is the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day -- or any other chilly February night.  Just say yes to the most romantic musical in 20 years and celebrate love with Theatre Alliance.

“A truly clever, and often hilarious score…a real winner.” – New York Theatre Guide

“Another instant crowd-pleaser is born.” - Variety

Wilson as Glen Guglia, Becki West as Rosie, and Kaylee Gonzalez as Linda.
