The multitalented Aurora Fox Theatre Company presents the Colorado debut of The Wedding Singer, choreographed and directed by Emmy nominee Mandy Moore of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance. Based on the 1998 Adam Sandler film of the same name, The Wedding Singer is a charming and energetic musical comedy that follows the romantic trials of New Jersey wedding singer and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart in the year 1985. As Hart attempts to woo Julia, a beautiful and kind waitress, away from her boorish fiancé, the cast will kick into the sweet sounds of original songs, including "Somebody Kill Me," "Grow Old with You," and a three-hour version of "Mambo No. 5." Also codirected by Moore’s sister Missy, this production promises to push the creative boundaries of typical community theater, as the stage will be set on a special rotating carousel, the script will be rife with '80s nostalgia, and the entire story will be narrated by Batman as he slowly sips on a glass of Scotch.
A local historic landmark, the 245-seat Aurora Fox converted from a movie theater in 1985 and has since brought professional, accessible theater productions to the Aurora area. Enjoy a friendly, upbeat evening at the Aurora Fox as a group outing, date night, or to avoid yet another family night of reenacting moments from season one of Survivor.
