Following on from the news that the TV show FRIENDS is getting a musical treatment, we’re now hearing that one of our absolute FAV 90s films is also being turned into a stage musical!

Adam Sandler’s best film, in our expert opinion anyway, The Wedding Singer, is being transformed into a musical and it’s heading to a stage right here Down Under!

It’s called ‘The Wedding Singer: The Musical Comedy’ is set to be an all-singing, all-dancing stage show based on the hit film.

Following incredible success on Broadway and across the UK, the stage show will now head to Melbourne theatre Athenaeum Theatre from Friday June 19.

And it’s set to take us straight back to the 80s, just like the OG film! We’re talking big hair and all of your favourite 80s wedding songs that no doubt you’ll be singing along to in the audience.

It will also follow the same storyline as the movie, telling the story of wedding-singer Robbie Hart (Sandler’s character) who is left at the altar and then vows to ruin all other weddings he’s part of. That is until he meets Julia (Drew Barrymore’s character) whom he falls madly in love with and now he has to somehow put an end to her own wedding.

The Wedding Singer: The Musical Comedy is only due to play in Melbourne as of yet but fingers crossed after success in this Aussie city it will come to Adelaide too.
