The Wedding Singer

Based on the New Line Cinema film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.

It's 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party, until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

The Wedding Singer will be presented on August 1, 2, 8 and 9, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday August 3 and 10 at 3:00 p.m. at the Charleston Civic Center Little Theater as its young adult summer theatre production.

Tickets are available online or at Civic Center box office.


Fiddler on the Roof

The Charleston Light Opera Guild is thrilled to close out its 65th Anniversary season with a mounting of the musical theatre masterpiece, Fiddler on the Roof, to be co-presented with the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences of West Virginia on October 31, November 1, 7 and 8, 2014 at 7:30 pm with matinees on Sunday November 2 and 9, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Performances for school age children and youth will be presented on the mornings of November 5 and 6, 2014.

Fiddler on the Roof is set in Imperial Russia in 1905. It is based on the short story "Tevye and his Daughters" by Sholem Aleichem. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters—each one's choice of husband moves further away from the customs of his faith—and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.

The Charleston Light Opera Guild has previously produced Fiddler on the Roof in 1972, 1978, 1989 and most recently in 2000.
