First Look: Photos of “The Wedding Singer” at NextStop Theatre in Herndon VA
Herndon, VA / Washington, D.C. – NextStop Theatre Company opened the Tony-nominated Broadway musical The Wedding Singer last weekend to launch their mainstage 2018-2019 season.
“The opening weekend was a blast!” said Abigail Fine, NextStop’s Managing Director. “The audience feels the festive atmosphere from the moment they walk in the theatre. The energetic performances are a nod to the 1980’s, and truly heartfelt.”
The Wedding Singer musical is based on the movie 1998 movie with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, adapted for the stage with two dozen high energy songs. The story takes place in 1985, when Robbie Hart is a wannabe rock star and New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. That is, until his fiancée leaves him at the altar.
The Wedding Singer is directed by NextStop’s Producing Artistic Director, Evan Hoffmann, with music direction by Steve Przybylski and choreography by Mark Hidalgo and Cathy Oh. The cast is led by Ricky Drummond in the title role, with Molly Rumberger, Amanda Leigh Corbett, Joshua Redford, Evan LaChance, James Finley, and nine additional professional, local actors.
“Celebrating their 30th year with a trip back to the ’80s, this Wedding Singer production by NextStop Theatre Company shows just how they’ve been able to bring smiles, tapping toes, and good times to the DMV for decades. A lively evening filled with music and laughter, this production certainly gives you something to sing about.” – DC Metro Theater Arts
