The Wagon Wheel Theatre will present the smash hit off-Broadway musical “The Marvelous Wonderettes.”
This 1950s and 1960s non-stop pop musical will be jitterbugging its way into the Wagon Wheel Theatre Wednesday through Aug. 23, according to a press release from the theater.
“The Marvelous Wonderettes” takes the audience to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet four girls with big voices and big dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. The question is, who will win prom queen?
The audience learns about their lives and loves while the girls perform the classic ’50s and ’60s pop songs. According to the release, audiences will enjoy the ’50s and ’60s song hits such as “Lollipop,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Mr. Sandman” and “It’s in His Kiss.”
Director of Marketing and Fund Development Rachel Mondragon said, “If you love the music of the 1950s and 1960s you don’t want to miss this musical. Audiences who saw last year’s show ‘Forever Plaid’ will see the similarities between the shows. Fantastic harmonies with well-known songs, this show is sure to be a hit with Wagon Wheel audiences.”
Tickets for “The Marvelous Wonderettes” range from $15 to 34. Discounts are available for college students and on designated performances for seniors.
