Your favorite late-nite nun returns with a laugh-packed holiday-themed show. Hilarity ensues as Sister tackles the question that has been puzzling historians throughout the ages: What happened to the Magi's gold? We already know that Mary put the frankincense and myrrh to use as potpourri to make the stable smell better. Think CSI: Bethlehem as Sister engages the audience -- you! -- to help her solve the mystery of the gold through a forensic examination of the nativity scene. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- The show previously ran at the El Portal Theatre, where it was one of the longest-running and most beloved shows listed on Goldstar. See customer reviews of The Marvelous Wonderettes.
- "The Marvelous Wonderettes returns to captivate us, with an aerated glee that is virtually irresistible. In its splendid new Laguna Playhouse staging, Roger Bean's long-running hit about four singing archetypes at the 1958 senior prom has never felt more marvelous in its audience regard, or more wonderful to its nostalgic core." --Los Angeles Times
- "It's tremendously fun!" --Variety
- "...stepping back into an age of innocence, even for two hours, seems like the perfect antidote to our turbulent times." --Orange County Register
The Marvelous Wonderettes ran for more than a year in North Hollywood and is headed to New York for an Off-Broadway run, but the Laguna Playhouse audiences get to see this “must-take trip down memory lane” first.
The Marvelous Wonderettes brings audiences back to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where they meet the Wonderettes: Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts—and voices to match! As they talk and sing about their lives and loves, audiences are treated to the girls performing such songs as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “It’s My Party,” “It’s In His Kiss” and many more.
Written and directed by Roger Bean.
