This is a news release from the Town of Vienna published verbatim.

Nicole Pradas is hitting all the right notes in her directorial debut in Vienna Youth Players’ (VYP) summer  production of The Wedding Singer.

The 2006 musical based on the 1998 Adam Sandler film of the same name is brimming with fun, jokes, music, and a cast of 35 youthful and energetic performers.

The Wedding Singer will premiere at 7:30 p.m. Friday, August 2, at the Vienna Community Center and will be staged at the same time August 3, 9, and 10, with a matinee performance at 1 p.m. Sunday, August 11. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased online at or in person at the community center.

“It’s really fun goofing off with everyone in the production,” says P.J. Pavot, who portrays the lead character, Robbie. “The environment kind of mixes the jokes and fun we have while in character, and it translates while we are between scenes. I think that’s a really nice benefit of choosing this play. And everyone loves the songs.”
