Missouri Western’s theatre department has taken on many big productions throughout the years. “The Producers,” “Urinetown” and “Godspell” are just a few of the big musicals to hit Potter Hall’s stage, and for the Spring 2017 season, they are tackling the 80s in their production of “The Wedding Singer.”
The musical debuted on Broadway in 2006 and is based on the hit 1998 Adam Sandler movie of the same name. The story revolves around Robbie Hart, an entertaining wedding singer who gets left at the alter by his fiancé. Devastated and humiliated, he is befriended by a waitress, Julia, who works at a reception hall where he regularly performs. She enlists his help to plan her wedding, but things become confusing when he begins to fall in love with her. The production is largely a comedy with a few serious moments mixed in. Cast member Cecilia Tackett, who plays Linda, hopes that after the last few more serious productions, this one will be a straightforward good time.

“It’s a very fun show set in the 80s – it’s a really fun experience to go through,” Tackett said. “Everybody in the show is having a great time with it. The whole entire cast is becoming a big family.”
The cast is ready and the show is drawing near. However, it took a lot of work to get there. Cast members had rehearsals from 7:00-10:00 p.m., five days a week, learning the choreography, lines and music of the production. While it is a lot of work, cast member Raven Reed, who plays Holly, says it’s rewarding.
“It’s challenging, it’s fast, it’s upbeat, it’s not really repetitive,” Reed said. “The choreography was awesomely intense. It was like ‘dang, this is cool, this is awesome.'”
They reserved up to four rooms every night in Potter for the different aspects of the production like vocals. Cast members would rotate, learning their different parts and working on schoolwork. When one considers other parts of the production like set design and costumes, there is a lot that goes into it.
The show opens on April 21 and runs through the 23, and then it runs again the next weekend on the 28-29. You can purchase advance tickets by going online to missouriwestern.edu or by heading to the box office in Potter Hall. This is a show that you don’t want to miss.
