The Wedding Singer: The Musical Comedy

Music by Matthew Sklar
Book by Chad Beguelin and Tim Herlihy
Lyrics by Chad Beguelin

Based on the New Line Cinema film
Written by Tim Herlihy

Sept 4 – Nov 8, 2015

A truly clever, and often hilarious score…a real winner.” – New York Theatre Guide

Another instant crowd-pleaser is born.” – Variety

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 fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. 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.

Based on the hit movie, 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.

80’s Solid Gold 2: A Musical Revue

Written by Howard Pechet & Timothy French

Nov 13, 2015 – Feb 7, 2016

Last season we learned just how difficult it is to jam a whole decade of the top influential new wave pop and rock music into one show. ’80s Solid Gold is back to finish what it started! Featuring Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Tina Turner, Billy Idol, The Pointer Sisters, Bobby McFerrin and Rick Astley; and that’s just scratching the surface. Get ready to break out the synthesized keytar, piano ties and neon scrunchies for one more amped-up trip through the biggest and best rock and pop hits of the ’80s!

Suite Surrender

By Michael McKeever

Feb 12 – Apr 17, 2016

Hilarity in every scene.” – Al Price, Palm Beach Jewish Journal

A fun fast-paced play, perfectly fitted with puns and punch lines. Thunderous applause.” – Badische Neueste Nachrichten

Two of Hollywood’s biggest divas have descended upon the luxurious Palm Beach Royale Hotel – assistants, luggage, and a legendary feud with one another in tow. Everything seems to be in order for their wartime performance…that is, until they are somehow assigned to the same suite. Mistaken identities, overblown egos, double-entendres, and a lap dog named Mr. Boodles round out this hilarious riot of a love note to classic farce.

Young Frankenstein

Book by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan
Music and Lyrics by Mel Brooks

Apr 22 – June 26, 2016

The Broadway Musical at its dizziest, glitziest and funniest! …bright and witty …among the cleverest things I’ve ever seen on stage.” – Clive Barnes, New York Post

“...truly exhilarating.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

A surefire smash! …With lightning flashes, thunder crashes, fog creeps and electrical impulses zigzagging, Young Frankenstein has come to life! A Monster Hit!” – Malcolm Johnson, The Hartford Courant

It’s alive! The electrifying adaptation of Mel Brooks’ monstrously funny film will leave you in stitches. From the creators of the record-breaking Broadway sensation The Producers, comes this monster new musical comedy. The comedy genius Mel Brooks adapts his legendarily funny film into a brilliant stage creation!

Grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein, Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronk-en-steen”) inherits his family’s estate in Transylvania. With the help of a hunchbacked sidekick, Igor (pronounced “Eye-gore”), and a leggy lab assistant, Inga (pronounced normally), Frederick finds himself in the mad scientist shoes of his ancestors. “It’s alive!” he exclaims as he brings to life a creature to rival his grandfather’s.

Legends of Rock ‘n’ Roll

July 1 – Sept 4, 2016

A Stage West classic original and crowd-favourite last seen back in 2000 returns to the stage in the summer of 2016, reuniting four of the absolute greatest legends who not only defined, but helped invent and re-invent Rock ‘n’ Roll throughout the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s: Buddy Holly, Tom Jones, Neil Diamond, and Elvis Presley. The glasses, the sex bomb, the diamond and the king will bring you back to your favourite classics like “Peggy Sue”, “That’ll Be The Day”, “It’s Not Unusual”, “Delilah”, “Sweet Caroline”, “America”, “Blue Suede Shoes”, “Jailhouse Rock”, and so many more!
