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 fiancée 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.

PLEASE NOTE: No roles have been pre-cast - No roles have been guaranteed to any individual.

interACT is the theatre in residence at The Baird Cultural Arts Center in South Orange, NJ. In 2019, the entire Baird building is closing for extensive renovations and will remain closed for a few years until the project is complete. During this time, we are proud to have the support of South Orange Middle School and The Burgdorff Center in allowing us to perform our mainstage productions "On The Run" in their spaces. If you or anyone you know has a space that would be willing to house us for our remaining Feb/March main-stage production slot, please contact AD Nick Clarey at

This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and administered by the Essex County Division of Cultural and Historic Affairs.
