Students work to create musical set that ‘screams’ ’80s

A musical that is literally a blast from the past is in the works. From break dancing, to quotes from 80s songs, sweat bands, big hair, and acid washed denim jeans “The Wedding Singer” is full of ‘80s culture.  A production of students from the Wanda L. Bass School of Music this musical was made into a staged performance after the movie starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore first experienced success.  The plot follows the main character, Robbie, a wedding singer who meets an engaged waitress with who he discovers a compatible relationship.  Director Paula Sloan, said the musical is a “timeless story.” “It’s about falling in love and finding the right person,” she said. “It’s just set in the 80s.” Audience members can expect a fun filled night with catchy music, Sloan said.  “The story is easy to follow, and there’s lots of good choreography restoring the ‘80s to the stage,” she said.  The show will be performed 8 p.m. April 15, 16 and 2 p.m. April 17 in the Kirkpatrick Auditorium in the Kirkpatrick Fine Arts Center. Tickets range from $12, $18, $25 and can be purchased by calling the ticket office at 405-208-5227.
