The Wedding Singer

Iowa Western Community College’s production of The Wedding Singer brings all the great music, fun and ’80s fashion from the movie to the stage at the Arts Center.

Director Moira Mangiameli said the musical follows the storyline of the film pretty closely. Though composer Matthew Sklar and lyricist Chad Beguelin include some big, splashy Broadway numbers in the musical, Mangiameli said it doesn’t change the story. This is still the story of Robby and Julia and how they get together.

Because the show is about the ’80s, which were all about excess, Mangiameli said the show is not appropriate for younger children. 

The Wedding Singer is just a feel good musical and the kids knock it out of the park” Mangiameli said.
