The Marvelous Wonderettes Coming This Weekend

By Alan Viau

How about a dinner theatre show your whole family can enjoy? Suzart Productions is serving up a new entertaining musical, The Marvelous Wonderettes! It’s onstage tonight, August 16, tomorrow, August 17, and August 22 to 24 at Britannia United Church.

The Marvelous Wonderettes is a musical comedy with a book by Roger Bean. It was recently played off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre in New York. The show, which uses pop songs from the ’50s and ’60s as a vehicle to tell its story, pays homage to the high school song-leader squads of the 1950s. When called upon to perform at their senior prom as a last minute replacement, the Springfield High Songleaders, Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy, rally together to entertain their classmates in four-part harmony.

The show features Mary Lou Hulan as Missy Millar, Vicky Brazeau as Suzy Simpson, Jackie Roy as Cindy Lou Huffington and Alison Manning as Betty Jean Reynolds.

You can tell by the lineup of songs that it will be a blast.
