CEDAR RAPIDSTheatre Cedar Rapids will hold auditions Sunday and Monday (Jan. 15 & 16) for “The Wedding Singer,” the Tony Award-nominated musical that performs March 9-31.

Auditions will be held at 7 p.m. each night at the theatre, located at 102 Third St. SE. Auditioners are asked to prepare 16 bars of a song of their choice. Due to the ‘80s theme of the show, the directors encourage auditioners to choose a song that was popular in the 1980s. No accompanist will be provided, so be comfortable singing the song a capella.

Auditioners will be also asked to dance and to read from the script, and are encouraged to wear clothing that’s comfortable to move in. If needed, callbacks will be held Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Directed by Leslie Charipar with music direction by Janelle Lauer and choreography by Patricia Offt, “The Wedding Singer” is a musical comedy based on the movie starring Adam Sandler. The story of a wedding singer in 1985 New Jersey who goes berserk after his own fiancée leaves him at the altar, the musical version received multiple Tony nominations during its 2006 Broadway run.
