A Fake '80s Wedding Is Happening in Sydney and You're Invited

Dance magic dance with Melbourne immersive theatre group The Boon Companions.

Dig out and dust off your very finest Wedding Singer-inspired formalwear, you're going to a fake '80s wedding. You'll be dancing to David Bowie, drinking champers and, right when you're least expecting it, encountering an overly enthusiastic bridesmaid.

Named Dance Magic Dance: Wedding Reception, this immersive live theatre party is being brought to you by Melbourne's The Boon Companions, in their first-ever appearance in Sydney. They've previously won over Victorian crowds with sell-out events I Am Woman and Cast Party, and now they're taking over Glebe's new co-working cafe, The Works, with their latest work.

Show your ticket at the door and you'll be ushered back to July 1989. You've just watched Peter and Sherry Entwhistle tie the knot and now you're at the reception, in the role of a close connection of the wedding party. Raising a glass, you, along with close friends and family members, will send the Entwhistles deep into blissful eternity. Even Lindsay McDougall and friends are forming a house band playing live '80s wedding songs. But don't go getting too misty-eyed – you'll need to keep your eyes and ears open all night long.

Dance Magic Dance: Wedding Reception is being held at The Works, 62 Glebe Point Road, Glebe on Saturday, July 9, from 7.30-11pm. Tickets are available online and a cash bar will be open throughout the evening.
