The Charles Seller Foundation’s Talent Time performs the musical “The Wedding Singer,” based on the New Line Cinema film of the same name. The Wedding Singer brings you back to 1985. 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. Only trouble is 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.
In 1950, a young man named Charles Seller was struck by a train losing one of his legs. His family and friends came together to put on a variety show named Talent Time to aid in his medical costs. This started a tradition in Bloomfield, NJ, that has lasted for more than 60 years. Each summer the members, who are in their teens to early thirties, produce and perform a musical in which all profits go towards someone in the area with high medical bills. All proceeds this year will go to benefit Jessica Pastore, a 16-year-old Bloomfield resident who was left blind after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor.
