Jon Robyns, Ray Quinn, Roxanne Pallett & Cassie Compton to star in new UK tour of The Wedding Singer
The cast includes Jon Robyns as Robbie Hart, Ray Quinn as Glen, Cassie Compton as Julia, Roxanne Pallett as Holly, Ruth Madoc as Grandma Rosie and Samuel Holmes as George with further casting to be announced.
Set in 1985 rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart (Jon Robyns: Avenue Q, Legally Blonde) is New Jersey’s favourite wedding singer. When his own fiancée dumps him at the altar a seriously bummed out Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own.
Can sweet natured Julia, (Cassie Compton: X Factor) and her best friend Holly (Roxanne Pallett: Emmerdale, Waterloo Road) lure Robbie out of the dumpster and back into the limelight? Or is he going to see her head off down the aisle with Wall Street bad boy Glenn (Ray Quinn: X Factor, Dancing On Ice)? Only Grandma Rosie (Ruth Madoc: Hi-De-Hi!, Little Britain) seems to be able to see that Robbie and Julia are the couple that are meant to be.
The Wedding Singer tour will be directed and choreographed by Nick Winston. Set and costumes are by Francis O’Connor, musical supervision is by Sarah Travis whilst musical direction and orchestrations are by George Dyer. Lighting is by Ben Cracknell with sound by Richard Brooker, video by Jack Henry James and casting by Jim Arnold.
