The Wedding Singer Auditions

The Wedding Singer Auditions wedding-singer-square.jpg
The Exit 7 Players is pleased to announce auditions for the upcoming production of The Wedding Singer. All roles are open, no roles have been precast.
 
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. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer's sparkling new score does for the '80s what Hairspray did for the '60s. Just say yes to the most romantic musical in twenty years.
