It’s the closest thing Cincinnati has to “Hey, my dad’s got a barn — let’s put on a show.” In this case, “Dad” is Tim Perrino, the barn is Covedale Center for the Performing Arts, and this year’s show is The Wedding Singer, a piece of 1985 fluff.

But it’s fluff that high school kids from all over Greater Cincinnati will have a blast pulling off as this summer’s production for Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre, which has been doing this with Perrino in charge for 30 years, engaging more than 2,000 teens in onstage fun. Wedding Singer is based on the goofy but popular 1998 film that starred Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, and comes with a score full of Pop tunes from the 1980s. Through Aug. 5. $10-$20. Covedale Center for the Performing Arts. 4990 Glenway Ave., Covedale. 513-241-6550.
