Auditions for Things My Mother Taught Me: May 22 & 23, 7:30 PM.

Current Production: The Wedding Singer
June 2-18, 2017

Directed by: John Francis


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 Adam Sandler movie, the sparkling new score does for the '80s what Hairspray did for the '60s. 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 fiancee 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 xperformance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

Not suitable for small children, some adult language.

The Theater History

The theater was founded in 1961 as the Westminster Players with the presentation of Applause.  The building was constructed in 1974 and the first show presented on May 31, 1974, was Don't Drink the Water.  The building seats 122 persons and is presented in a Thrust Stage format.

Westminster Community Playhouse is a not for profit organization founded in 1961.  The board of directors consists of 12 full time members elected by the general membership and each member serves for 2 years.  Our board meetings are on the first Wednesday of each month starting at 7:00 PM, the public is invited. The theater is a non-equity volunteer organization.   The theater has presented hundreds of plays since 1961.  The season consists of 6 shows, usually 1 musical, 1 murder mystery (and/or 1 drama) and 3 or 4 comedies.  The shows are presented for 3 weeks with 7-8 weeks of rehearsals.  Show times are Fridays at 8:00 PM, Saturdays at 8:00 PM and 3 public Sunday matinees at 2:00 PM.  Please contact the Secretary (on the AboutUs page) for group rate and season ticket information. At the end of the year we have a presentation entitled The Abbey Awards. Here all actors from all shows are eligible for winning in their particular category, as well as Best Director and Best Show. The public is also invited and elections for new board members are cast by the members of the theater. A member is anyone who donates at least 20 hours during a season. We encourge everyone to get involved with your community theater. If you are interested in WCP, contact any of the board members by email - or call the voice mail/lobby number.
