THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES
The Little Theatre of Manchester (LTM) will present THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES, the long-running Off-Broadway smash hit by Roger Bean, replacing the previously announced LEADER OF THE PACK.
Using more than 20 chart-topping hit songs from the 50s and 60s to tell its story, THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES takes a cotton-candied colored journey to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet “The Wonderettes”, a female quartet with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES will keep audiences smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane from prom night to their ten-year reunion, performing such classics as “It’s My Party,” “Mr. Sandman,” “Lollipop,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Leader of the Pack,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “RESPECT,” “You Don’t Own Me,” “Rescue Me,” and more.
LTM Executive Director, Dwayne Harris, directs this production. “These songs, we hope, will bring back wonderful memories for most of the audience and expose a younger generation to the delightful music of the 50s and 60s.”
In addition to THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES, Roger Bean wrote and created the popular jukebox musicals Summer of Love, The Andrews Brothers, Route 66, Honky Tonk Laundry, and Why Do Fools Fall In Love? THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES received the 2007 LA Ovation Award for Best Musical for its record-breaking Los Angeles run and continues to be an audience favorite in regional and amateur theatre companies throughout the country.
