The 70+ years strong Wranglers Theatre Company can’t wait to bring the Adult companies rendition of “The Wedding Singer” (a romantic musical comedy based on the 1998 film starring Adam Sadler and Drew Barrymore set in the ’80s and featuring popular musical numbers “It’s Your Wedding Day”, “Casualty of Love”, “Grow Old With You” and “All About the Green”.) to audiences in May.
This is the Company’s first time performing since Aladdin & Legally Blonde in 2019 due to the COVID- 19 Pandemic. Like many businesses, organizations, and individuals the theatre company had to suspend performances due to the pandemic this included the much anticipated and already cast and in rehearsal ‘Chicago’ and ‘Addams Family The Musical”. In addition to Spring shows, the Wrangler’s eagerly awaited pantomime “Mother Goose” had to be canceled only 3 days prior to opening in December 2021 due to members of the company testing positive for COVID-19.
Throughout the multiple pandemic lockdowns, the company has strived to keep its audience and membership engaged adapting quickly to find alternative ways to engage in their theatre passion. One way they were able to keep the Children & Youth companies engaged was by rehearsing for the Addams Family in bubbles, they also delivered two virtual “summer balls” for the company membership in the absence of their normal summer social celebration for the company.
Wendy Holmes the Company Chairman said:
‘Like many people ‘zooming’ for our company became the new normal, and whilst not ideal provided a way to keep us all in touch through difficult times. We have a wonderfully talented and friendly company and it’s great to finally be back together rehearsing for this fabulous feel-good show. It’s just what we all need!”
