Adam Sandler classic ‘The Wedding Singer’ comes to the stage

193

There is no liking Adam Sandler. You either love him or hate him. Proponents of his will often argue ‘Billy Madison,’ ‘The Waterboy,’ and ‘Happy Gilmore’ belong in the annals of comedy gold.

Those who dislike him point to everything he has made in the last decade. One of his most universally beloved films is ‘The Wedding Singer,’ with the live musical adaption being performed by the Northglenn Players.

A musical tale of love set in the 1980s, directed by former Northglenn Youth Theatre member Christina Roberts, the big-hair matches the big heart of a would-be rockstar, one with self-destructive tendencies,  and the waitress who is engaged to marry that he falls in love with.

Friday and Saturday, 7:30 P.M.; Sunday., 2 P.M., July 19–28. Tickets are $12 for youths, seniors and $14 for adults. DL Parsons Theatre, 11801 Community Center Dr. northglennarts.org. [email protected]; 303-450-8800.
