Cricket Theatre's high school company welcomes audiences to "The Wedding Singer," which will be performed live at historic Cutting Hall Performing Arts Center in Palatine. Tickets are available at cuttinghall.org.

In "The Wedding Singer," it's 1985 and rock star wannabe Robbie Heart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his fiancee leaves him at the altar.

 

Shot through the heart, Robbie is so distraught that he makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. But when Robbie meets Julia, it might be a total eclipse of the heart.

Featuring styles and music reminiscent of the totally tubular '80s, this show will have audiences tapping their Chuck Taylors, laughing out loud, and rooting for a happy ending.

The performances will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Friday, July 21 and 23, and feature two casts of nearly 30 actors each. Directors Adam Lamb and Teah Mirabelli have been working with students since June.

Founded in 2013, Cricket Theatre Company is a nonprofit corporation and aims to provide children and young adults with experience in the theater arts while building community.

According to Mary Beth Euker, director and one of the founding members of Cricket Theatre, "Cricket has safely navigated performing during COVID. We are pleased the kids can be together with their friends on stage once again."

In addition to "The Wedding Singer," Cricket is producing three additional shows this summer with younger age groups. More information is available at CricketTheatre.org.

Cutting Hall is at 150 E. Wood St., Palatine.
