Splinters Theatre Group’s production of ‘The Wedding Singer’ based on the film of the same name starring Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler was a very apt choice this year as three of its main members have had to forgo being in the show to star at their own weddings.

Laura Radcliffe, Rachel Middleton, and Heather Tinker are all getting married within six weeks of each other between September and October. All three girls are members of the Company and would have loved to be in the show but due to their own wedding preparations found it impossible to attend rehearsals and plan for their big day at the same time. In fact both Laura and Rachel will be on their honeymoon for the week of the show.

However a lot of the company will be guests at the weddings which will mean there will be plenty of ‘wedding singers’ to make up for not being in the show!

In the attached photo Danielle Smith and Emma Townend who are playing the two brides in the show are joined by Rachel Middleton and Heather Tinker (Laura married this weekend and is already on her honeymoon ). Heather and Rachel are dressed ready for their hen nights, as it is tradition of course that the actual dress must not been seen until the big day.


The show transports us to the 1980’s where the hero Robbie Hart (James Parkin) who is a talented wedding singer is left standing at the altar by Linda (Danielle Smith) on his own wedding day. Convinced by his friends to go back to work, Robbie finds consolation with Julia (Emma Townend), a waitress who works at the reception hall where he sings, and who is about to marry Glenn ( Adam Walker). As Robbie helps Julia plan for her wedding, they begin to fall for each other, and Robbie realises that if either of them are ever going to be happy, he is going to have to pull off one heck of a show.

Come and join the Splinters Theatre Group as they transport you back to the days of the 80’s with songs from Culture Club, Madonna, Wham, Lionel Richie, Spandau Ballet; Elvis Costello; and many, many more. You will leave the theatre singing 80’s hits all the way home.
