Head back to the 80s and join the party this April

Get ready to party like it’s 1985 with the classic musical comedy - ‘The Wedding Singer’ which will be performed at Landau Forte Academy from April 4 to April 7.

Tamworth Musical Theatre Company (formerly known as Tamworth Arts Club) presents this hit production set in 1985 when hair is huge, greed is good 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.

The story continues when Robbie meets Julia, a naïve waitress who wins his affection. Only trouble is 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.

This romantic musical pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, guaranteed to get audiences singing along and joining in the party.

Tickets are priced at £10 and doors open at 6:30pm for a 7.30pm start. A matinee performance will be shown on Saturday, April 7, when doors open at 2pm for a 2:30pm start. Please note that there is a £1 transaction fee for phone and online orders. Audiences booking in groups can take advantage of a special offer of 10% off when buying 10 tickets.

Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts and Events team have been working hard to create a new and varied line up of shows and acts for Tamworth families and visitors to enjoy over the coming months and while the town’s historic Assembly Rooms theatre undergoes a major refurbishment.

This includes more Assembly Rooms on Tour, taking some of the theatre’s favourite performers out into community locations, and popular seasonal outdoor events.

The refurbishment project has now entered the construction phase and we want to share the journey with you as well as the theatre’s history and future. You can follow the Assembly Rooms Development Blog and see our touring exhibition as it makes its way across various locations in Tamworth.

“Providing quality entertainment for our residents and attracting visitors to the town remains a key priority for the council and our thanks go to the Arts and Events team for organising another fantastic selection of events for the new season.”
