Wedding Singer Takes to Empire Theatre

Everyone loves a good wedding and Toowoomba Grammar School and Fairholme College are joining forces for the wedding of the century at the Empire Theatre.

After six months of twice-weekly rehearsals, the fluro, teased hair and lace will be paraded on the Empire Theatre stage in this remake of the Adam Sandler / Drew Barrymore smash hit comedy.

More than sixty students from the two schools are involved in the production and have even created the props themselves. There was plenty of op-shop visits and raiding parents’ wardrobes for the perfect outfits!

Every two years Toowoomba Grammar School and Fairholme College join forces for a massive Empire Theatre production, with past hits including Titanic and Oliver Twist.

The Wedding Singer is a far cry from those traditional musicals but is guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.

Performances will be held at 7:00pm Thursday, 15 – Saturday, 17 August, with a special matinee performance at 11:00am Thursday, 15 August with discounted tickets for schools, pensioners and carers.
