Northglenn Players production of The Wedding Singer the Musical will be presented at the DL Parsons Theatre July 19-28.

The cast also features Kade Fritzler (Sammy), David Moyer (George), Ashley DiSilva (Holly), Nick Martinez (Glen Gulia), Michelle Jeffres (Rosie), Anna Sturtz (Linda), and Preston Adams, Michaela Lamb, Rita DiSibio, Lauren Garcia, Mariel Goffredi, Kyle Lawrence, and Corson Lewarne as ensemble players.
The Wedding Singer is directed by former Northglenn Youth Theatre member Christina Roberts. “We are very excited to have Christina on-board and directing The Wedding Singer! Northglenn Players was in part created to give youth graduating from the NYT program a continuous connection to Northglenn’s community. It’s always fun to see one of our former “NYT kids” take the reigns and direct their first show for us,” states Executive Director Michael Stricker. Roberts studied Theatre Arts Education at the University of Northern Colorado and is Artistic Director of Q1Go Productions.
The Wedding Singer is choreographed by Henry and True West award-winner Laurence Curry. Curry is a former Teaching Artist for DCPA Education and a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. His vast experience as an actor, teacher and choreographer brings a unique vision to the production.
Musical direction by Jeremy Kurn includes live music with six musicians in the theatre. Instrumentation includes keyboard, guitar, drums, bass, reed and trumpet.
The Wedding Singer tells the story of a 1980-something rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart. His life is a party until his fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding he plays a disaster like his own. He meets Julia, a sweet waitress, who wins his affection. Only trouble is that Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of the 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, The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer just might be the coolest guy in the room.
