Roxy Regional Theatre brings ’80s Tunes to life with the Musical Comedy “The Wedding Singer” Opening this Friday, May 25th, at 8:00pm

Roxy Regional TheatreThe Wedding Singer at the Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – Starting May 25th, let the Roxy Regional Theatre’s “The Wedding Singer” take you back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.

It’s 1985, and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party, until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own.

Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. Only trouble is, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. With a brand new score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, audiences will be grooving to the tunes in this hilarious musical comedy based on the hit movie starring Adam Sandler.
