Art Park Players present "The Wedding Singer" - July 2018

The Wedding Singer

Join the Parks and Recreation Department’s Art Park Players for “The Wedding Singer,” a romantic musical comedy based on the 1998 film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.

The production – which stars Matt Pena as “Robbie Hart” and YouTube sensation Nicole Daniels as “Julia Sullivan” – starts Friday, July 6 at the Municipal Court and Theater Building, located at 1302 Center Street.

“‘The Wedding Singer’ musical was inspired by the beloved film of the same name, and audiences who enjoyed the movie are sure to enjoy this show,” said David Eck, Theater Specialist and Director of the production. “It’s the same story you know and love – the ‘Guy meets girl, Guy almost loses girl to the wrong guy, Guy wins girl’ romance – but with lots of special cameos.

“Audiences will enjoy references to 1980s icons like Mr. T, Ronald Raegan, Cindi Lauper and Billy Idol, as well as surprise cameos by Deer Park elected officials and City leaders.”

Just like in the movie, Eck said the music featured in “The Wedding Singer” will truly impress audiences, but in ways unique to Deer Park.

“Matt Pena, who played ‘Shrek’ last season, is actually in a band, so he’ll be playing guitar and leading Robbie Hart’s band on stage,” he said. “As well, Nicole Daniels has her own YouTube channel with videos that have reached over two million people - her voice is absolutely incredible.” 

Performances of “The Wedding Singer” will be held on July 6-8, 13-15 and 20-21. The performances on July 8 and 15 will be matinee performances with curtain at 2PM – all other shows will be evening performances with curtain at 8PM.

Show-only tickets may be purchased for $15 each. For more information or to purchase tickets, call the APP Box Office at 281-794-2448.
