Written and created by Roger Bean, the smash off-Broadway hit musical The Marvelous Wonderettes returns to the Saint Vincent Summer Theatre. Full of music, fun and laughter, the New York Times has called this musical “irresistible… An utter charm bomb.”
Doo-wop takes center stage in this musical set in 1958 at Springfield High School, where the Wonderettes, four girls with hopes and dreams, perform classics songs such as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “It’s my Party” and more than 20 other classic hits. The first act takes part at the girls’ prom, while the second act follows a decade later during their high school reunion.
