Gatepost Theatre Company’s latest musical production will be The Wedding Singer, to be staged at Derby’s Guildhall Theatre from March 6-9.

The Heanor-based company is pulling out all the stops on this one with its own custom-made set and fabulous costumes, all funded through grant initiatives.

The Wedding Singer is basedf on the popular Hollywood film and takes audiences 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 favourite wedding singer.

He’s the life of the party, until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar.

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.

Tickets to see the show are available from 01332 255800.
