The Wedding Singer

It's sometimes funny how things can happen when you have no idea that they are going to take place.

Take today for example. I had no idea that we would be going to the Playhouse in the evening, due to something that I read on a friends' Facebook page.

Someone he knows had put this message on asking if anyone could visit the theatre and do a review of the musical that he was involved in. As I have done small reviews of shows, restaurants and events before, I contacted Darren and so Gail and I found ourselves sitting in the Playhouse and watching some great performances in action, even though they were all amateurs. First year students actually at Trent University.

The musical version of The Wedding Singer is based on the 1998 film of the same name. It's the usual story of boy meets girl, they both fancy each other, but are both too shy to declare their love for each other. Of course it all ends happily, just as the audience left the theatre.
