ST Augustine’s really do revel in the colourful fashions of years gone by.

ST Augustine’s really do revel in the colourful fashions of years gone by.

In recent years, they’ve whisked audiences back to the thirties (Red Hot and Cole) and seventies (last year’s Disco Inferno).

In their latest show, it’s a return to the 1980s, with The Wedding Singer - best described as a romantic comedy.

It’s the story of Robbie and Julia - he was jilted at the altar, her boyfriend doesn’t appreciate her.

You can probably guess where things are going, but it’s the music, not the plot, which really holds the show together.

As always, St Augustine’s do a great job with the many song and dance numbers - the performance weighs in at two hours, 40 minutes.

There’s a five-piece band, well-choreographed dancers and enough costume changes to put a professional show to shame.

Okay, so we all know how it’s going to end, but it’s warm and funny while it lasts.
