The Marvelous Wonderettes
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the board directors had to take the decision to cancel this production.
Does the mention of the 1950s stir memories of hula hoops and American bandstand? Do go-go boots, Motown tunes and love ballads take you back to the 1960s? Then Roger Bean's award-winning musical comedy, The Marvelous Wonderettes, is guaranteed to be a slam dunk!
The Marvelous Wonderettes is a tribute to the girl-group sound of the 50s and 60s, featuring iconic songs, including such classics as Mr. Sandman, Heatwave and Leader of the Pack. Act I joins four innocent teenages, as they celebrate their 1958 super senior prom and share their hopes and dreams for the future. Act II fast-forwards to their 1968 Ten Year High School Reunion. The girls have lived, loved and lost (and loved again).
The Marvelous Wonderettes is a show celebrating dreams, friendship, heartbreak and love. Please step back in time and join us back in the days of crinolines, cat eye glasses and sock hops. We hope you enjoy this hilarious and beautiful ride down memory lane!
