A cotton-candy colored, non-stop 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 50’s and 60’s 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!

Musical Arrangements by Brian William Baker; Orchestrations by Michael Borth. Vocal Arrangements by Roger Bean and Brian William Baker.

Originally produced for the New York Stage by David Elzer, Roger Bean and Peter Schneider.
