The only trouble is Julia is about to be married to faithless Wall Street magnate, Glen.

Can Robbie pull off the performance of the decade and win the heart of the girl of his dreams?

Stage One founder, Jai Sepple, who plays the title role, says: "Like Hairspray, The Wedding Singer is a natural for the stage - the perfect marriage of a hilarious script and a sensational score.

"We are so excited to have so many talented people involved in the production; an incredibly talented cast under the skilled direction of West End actor, Simon Lipkin (Avenue Q, Wedding Singer, Footloose) with electrifying choreography by Harri Sepple (Cats, Les Miserables)."

This feel-good musical takes its audience on a nostalgic trip, back to a time when hair was big, collars were up, shoulder pads were in and a wedding singer might just have been the coolest guy in the room!

The Wedding Singer will be performed at the Kenneth More Theatre, Oakfield Road, Ilford from Wednesday to Saturday. Performances at 7.45pm (with a Saturday matinee at 3pm).
