The BLODS’ Autumn 2019 production will be the musical comedy, ‘The Wedding Singer’. It is a first for the society and we hope to make it a spectacular show – and one that stands out as a great experience for our cast. There are eight principal parts available, plus many memorable featured-ensemble characters which we can have a lot of fun with.
TWS is based on the classic 1997 rom-com of the same name, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, but unlike the film it does not feature any 80s pop classics. It has a fantastic original score for us to get our teeth into, in addition to the two songs played by Robbie in the film (“Somebody Kill Me” and “I Wanna Grow Old With You”).
We hope that you will join us for the auditions on Monday, 17th June. They will be closed full details can be found via the link above.
