Thank you for your interest in auditioning for The Wedding Singer! SCCT has been trying for a few years (since 2009!) to bring this show to life, and I’m very excited to be on the team that gets to do this!

I’m approaching this show as a love-letter to the 1980s. We’re going to be celebrating the big hair, the bright colors, and especially the MUSIC. As such, feel free to use a non-traditional song for your audition – something that truly celebrates the ’80s!  Of course, this musical is based on the 1998 Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore movie, which has become a classic. I encourage each of you to take 2 hours and watch the movie ahead of auditions, as the stage show is VERY similar.

Further below, you will find the character descriptions, show synopsis, and more. Come to auditions relaxed and ready to show us your best – we want you all to succeed. Our total cast size will be 24-30 people, and we are looking for people from age 13 up, and are able to cast people of any race in any part. If this is your first audition, don’t sweat it! Just come to have fun!

If you aren’t able to prepare a song, feel free to just prepare “Happy Birthday,” as it shows off your range! You will be given some cold readings and sides at the audition. If you have any questions, please email me at

I hope to see you all on December 14 at The Attic, and 17-19 at SCCT Backstage!


Please come prepared to have fun at auditions. We want this to be an enjoyable experience you! If you are able, please download and fill out the Audition Form before arriving at auditions.

Auditions will consist of three parts:

1. Singing – Prepare a song of your choice, set in the style of the show (only 16 to 32 bars is necessary). This is preferred. Bring sheet music as an accompanist will be provided. Musical tracks are also welcomed via CD or MP3 (a player will be provided). A Capella is acceptable.
Note: People may be asked to do some vocalizing in order to determine range.

2. Reading – You will be asked to read an actual part from the show (called a Side). These will be provided at the audition and you will have time to look over them before you audition.

3. Dancing – Everyone will be asked to learn a dance routine. Wear something that you can move in. This includes proper foot attire.


Callbacks – Some people may be asked to come back Sunday afternoon to do some additional dancing, singing, and script reading. People being called back will be notified via phone call and/or email.

Casting – The entire cast list will be posted on the SCCT website and Facebook page. All cast members will be individually notified by phone and/or email by a member of the production team.

Please note also that current membership is required in order to perform in the show. If you are cast, you will be required to become a member prior to the start of rehearsals. More information on membership is available here.

Character Breakdown (from MTI’s Wedding Singer page)

Robbie Hart
The lead singer of a band. Handsome and charismatic. A truly ‘nice’ guy that has the classic lead singer aura and personality. Also a bit of a dreamer. In love with love until Linda leaves him at the altar and breaks his heart.
Male, 25-35 yrs old
Range: B3 – C6

The bass player in the wedding band and one of Robbie’s best friends. A total guy’s guy, but beneath his pretending to love being a bachelor he is actually in love with Holly.
Male, 25-35 yrs old
Range: C4 – A5

The wedding band’s keyboardist and one of Robbie’s best friends. He is sensitive and somewhat flamboyant. The foil to Sammy’s super guy attitude.
Male or Female, 25-35 yrs old
Range: C4 – A5

Julia Sullivan
Waitress. The pretty “girl next door” in looks and personality. Engaged to Glen but falls in love with Robbie and is conflicted as to who to choose. Empathetic, caring, and brave.
Female, 25-35 yrs old
Range: G3 – F5

Julia’s cousin. Sexually promiscuous and always up for a good time, but wants to be loved and is looking for romantic fulfillment in all the wrong places. She is in love with Sammy.
Female, 25-35 yrs old
Range: A3 – E5

Glen Guglia
Julia’s fiancé. A Wall Street broker. He is rich, shallow, and materialistic. Constantly tries to buy Julia’s love with money. He is a bit of a womanizer.
Male, 30-45 yrs old
Range: D4 – B5

Robbie’s grandmother who raised him. Motherly but adventurous and always trying to remain “hip” despite her age.
Female, 60-80 yrs old
Range: C4 – C5

Robbie’s fiancé who leaves him at the altar. Keeps Robbie around as a back-up plan. Is more in love with the idea of Robbie being a rock star than she actually is with Robbie.

Range: A3 – D5

Ensemble Couples (Harold & Debbie, Shane & Donatella, Crystal & Mookie); Wedding Guests; Stockbrokers; Impersonators



The Wedding Singer takes us back to 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. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer‘s sparkling new score does for the ’80s what Hairspray did for the ’60s. Just say yes to the most romantic musical in 20 years.

It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party, until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, 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.

The Wedding Singer features a large chorus with many featured roles for actors who sing, and dancers who act.
