Theatergoers will be transported to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where they will meet The Wonderettes, four girls with voices as big as their bouffants and personalities as kooky as their crinoline skirts!
The Marvelous Wonderettes opened Off-Broadway in 2008, at the Westside Theatre in New York City. Since 2008, the show has enjoyed a vibrant life in the Regional Theatre world with its message and music that anyone can relate to. As we learn about the Wonderettes’ lives and loves, we are treated to the girls performing classic 50’s & 60’s hits such as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “It’s My Party,” and over 20 additional hits! You have never had this much fun at prom, and you will never forget this must-take musical trip down memory lane.
Tickets are $15 at the door and all student are free.
