TheaterWorks Closes 33rd Season with THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES


TheaterWorks Closes 33rd Season with THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES

TheaterWorks completes the 2018-2019 Season with a musical blast from the past. The Marvelous Wonderettes is on stage in the Gyder Theater March 29 through April 14 at the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts.

The setting is 1958 at Springfield High School and Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy are hosting their senior prom. We learn about their lives, loves and secrets while they serenade the audience with famous pop songs from the 50's and 60's like "Stupid Cupid", "Lollipop" and "Mr. Sandman". In Act two, the girls reunite ten years later to host their High School Reunion. We learn about how their lives turned out, their trials and tribulations and how they overcame struggles they faced. This upbeat, musical comedy will leave the entire audience walking out of the theater with a smile on their face and a classic pop song stuck in their head. If you liked last season's Forever Plaid, you will love The Marvelous Wonderettes!

The Marvelous Wonderettes is directed by renowned, Valley director and choreographer, Molly Lajoie. Lajoie knows this show will be relatable no matter who you are. She says, "Marvelous women. Marvelous friends. Marvelous Wonderettes. Are you a "Missy", "Cindy Lou", "Suzy", " Betty Jean" or a combination of all of them? I know who I am, but join us for some fun and laughs and discover who you are!"

The Marvelous Wonderettes was Written and Created by Roger Bean, Musical Arrangements by Brian William Baker, Orchestrations by Michael Borth, Vocal Arrangements by Roger Bean & Brian William Baker. Presented by special arrangement with Stage Rights (
