The Wedding Singer comes to Halswell

80'S-THEMED PARTY: The cast of the Halswell Drama Group.

The Halswell Drama Group is gearing up to perform another stage production.

The group will present The Wedding Singer based on the movie of the same name starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.

The show goes back to 1985 – 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.

Vice-president Tim Gunther said the musical promises to get you up dancing faster than your dad at a wedding.

He said the drama group are a small, but passionate group of south-western locals who have been performing for the benefit of their local community for more than 50 years.

The cast is made up of members from places including Halswell, Rolleston, Lincoln and Tai Tapu.

The show is to be held September 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23 at the  Halswell Community Hall, 450 Halswell Rd.
