Laura Woyasz Returns to THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES
The Marvelous Wonderettes is thrilled to welcome its original "Wonderstudy", Laura Woyasz, back to the production. Woyasz will be taking on the role of Missy Miller full time replacing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory bound Kristy Cates. Woyasz was last seen in the tour of Cheers Live on Stage as well as the Broadway company of Wicked as Glinda.
The cast currently features Jenna Leigh Green (Wicked, bare, Sabrina the Teenage Witch) as Cindy Lou, Ryann Redmond (If/Then, Bring It On: the Musical, and the Off-Broadway cult favorite Gigantic) as Suzy Simpson, and Sally Schwab (A Broadway Diva Christmas) as Betty Jean.
The show is also excited to welcome its newest "Wonderstudy" Tricia Tanguy. Tanguy is no stranger to The Marvelous Wonderettes, having been the Dance Captain and Understudy for the original Off-Broadway company. She was recently seen understudying Wonderettes alum Diana DeGarmo as the Narrator in the National Tour of Joseph... Dreamcoat and was seen in the First National Tour of Sister Act.
The Marvelous Wonderettes takes a cotton-candied colored musical trip down memory lane to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet "The Wonderettes", four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! We experience their lives and loves from prom night to their 10 year reunion as told through more than 20 chart topping hits of the era!
