“The Wedding Singer,” the third and final production in Straw Hat Theatre’s 2016 season, opens Friday, July 29. It’s 1985, and Robbie Hart is a wedding singer looking forward to marrying the love of his life—until she leaves him at the altar. When he befriends Julia Sullivan, a catering waitress, at a gig, life starts looking up. But Julia’s about to marry her Wall Street banker boyfriend, and if Robbie wants to win her heart, he’ll have to hit all the right notes.
