A Karaoke Wedding

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Music, lyrics and musical direction by Harry Blake. Book by John Hilton. Original idea and direction by Gabby Vautier.

Over 165,000 British couples divorced last year, but Bernadette and Dave are still desperate to enter a life of matrimonial bliss and Ikea furniture. Join them, and a whole host of characters, as they search for the secret to eternal happiness

Karaoke Wedding is the brand new musical comedy that takes a cynical look at the materialistic madness surrounding 'the most important day of your life'.

It follows the story of a thoroughly modern couple who win their fantasy wedding in a radio competition. A dream come true for some, but in the hands of a belligerent bride-to-be, a dithering groom and best man in love with an inflatable doll, this Karaoke Wedding could prove to be a nightmare.

Written by up-and-coming male comedy duo, lyricist and composer Harry Blake and playwright John Hilton, this musical features a cast of sixteen singing a bevy of original songs. And with live post-show karaoke on specific nights (call the box office for details). 'Karaoke Wedding' is the kitsch new musical satire that is guaranteed to have you dancing down the aisle.
