We are currently working on our spring musical The Wedding Singer and are in need of help covering the cost of a pianist and production costs.
South Plantation High School is the only cluster school in the Broward School District for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Because of this unique status, the theatre program director, Jason Zembuch -Young, has chosen to direct all productions in a style known as "Theatre For The Deaf" with all main stage productions being performed in both voice and American Sign Language. His belief is that theatre should be accessible to ALL students and audiences.
Our program receives $0 from the school board and all monies raised for productions, field trips, competitions etc., are raised by Zembuch, his students and the FOTT. The South Plantation High School Friends of the Theater (FOTT) is a not for profit organization that raises money to support and sustain this program as well as awards four $1,000 scholarships annually to our graduating seniors. We work non stop throughout the year with our fundraisers that include spaghetti dinners, garage sales, bake sales, car washes, candy sales etc and are always seeking support.
The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer's sparkling new score does for the '80s what Hairspray did for the '60s. Just say yes to the most romantic musical in twenty years.
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.
