GRANGE Theatre is to host an iconic 80s musical.

The final preparations are underway as the Zodiac Musical Theatre Company prepares to stage a musical version of the much-loved Adam Sandler film, The Wedding Singer.

It opens tonight at the theatre on Bradburns Lane in Hartford, running each night until Saturday (November 11), when there will also be a matinee.

The show marks Lou Steggals directorial debut with the company, and she will be joined by seasoned musical director Craig Price and choreographer Jessica Martin.

She said "We're excited to be bringing this high energy show to the Grange Theatre.

“The Wedding Singer is packed with original songs but don’t be surprised if some of them sound familiar as every number is designed to be a pastiche to the iconic hits of the 1980s.

“Performed by a live band and an energetic cast, you will not want to miss this production!"

Founded in 1968, Zodiac Musical Theatre Company most recently staged a critically acclaimed production of  "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" at Frodsham Community Centre.

Their latest production, The Wedding Singer, features music by Matthew Skylar and Lyrics by Chad Beguelin and is based on the 1998 Adam Sandler film of the same name.

It is set in 1985 and tells the story of Robbie Hart, New Jersey's favourite wedding singer.

Robbie is the life of the party until his own fiancée 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.

The Tony-nominated show, which originally premiered on Broadway in 2006, has since gone on to be performed in both the USA and the UK, including a 2020 production starring former Strictly Come Dancing star Kevin Clifton.

It arrives in Northwich on Wednesday (November 8), with shows at 7.30pm each night up to and including Saturday (November 11).

There will also be a 2pm matinee on the Saturday.
