The Marvelous Wonderettes

Written, Created & Directed by

Roger Bean

June 3-19, 2011






A cotton-candy colored, nonstop pop musical blast from the past! Featuring your favorite songs from the '50s and '60s, The Marvelous Wonderettes takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes - Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts and voices to match! As we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the girls performing such classic '50s and '60s songs as "Lollipop," "Dream Lover," "Stupid Cupid," "Lipstick on Your Collar," "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me," "It's My Party," "It's In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)" and so many more!  You've never had this much fun at a prom and you will never forget The Marvelous Wonderettes - a must-take musical trip down memory lane!

"The fun never stops! Hilariously inventive and highly entertaining! Bubbly and irrepressible! Fast-paced, clever and delightful!"
- Associated Press

"It's tremendously fun! A delightfully good time!"
- Variety

"The Marvelous Wonderettes is deliciously enjoyable!"

- Los Angeles Times

"One irresistible musical! An utter charm!"

- The New York Times
