we loved it...the music was great and comedy too...
this is one the best plays we've seen and would definately see it again. It was very entertaining and kept the audience in stiches. It was well worth it.

It’s a cotton-candy-colored, nonstop pop musical blast from the past! Featuring your favorite songs from the ‘50s an d’60s, The Marvelous Wonderettes takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we 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 we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the girls performing such classic ‘50s and ’60s songs as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” "It’s My Party," “It’s In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)” and so many more!  You’ve never had this much fun at a prom and you will never forget_ The Marvelous Wonderettes_ — a must-take musical trip down memory lane!
