The Wagon Wheel Theatre presents 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 Aug. 13-23.
The Marvelous Wonderettes takes the audience to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet four girls with big voices and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. The question is, who will win prom queen?
We learn about their lives and loves while the girls perform the classic 50’s and 60’s pop songs. Audiences will enjoy the 50’s and 60’s song hits such as “Lollipop,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Mr. Sandman” and “It’s in His Kiss.”
Director of Marketing and Fund Development Rachel Mondragon says, “If you love the music of the 1950s and 1960s you don’t want to miss this musical. Audiences who saw last years 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. For more information visit www.wagonwheeltheatre.org or call the box office at 574-267-8041.
