This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” In act two, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring over 30 classic ’50s and ’60s hits, The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!
All performers will receive a $400 stipend.

- A draft PDF is available below
CINDY LOU (18, 28) knows she is the prettiest girl at Springfield High. She assumes she will be named Prom Queen and acts out against best friend Betty Jean when things don't go her way. She makes the biggest change between Act 1 & 2, having learned the lessons of true love and loss. Cindy Lou wears pink.
MISSY (18, 28) is the over-achiever of the group. Very controlled and controlling, and extremely concerned that everything at the prom turns out wonderful and perfect. An elementary school teacher in-the-making, she is head of the prom decorations committee, and absolutely smitten with her music teacher, Mr. Lee. Her best friend is Suzy. Missy wears orange/apricot.
BETTY JEAN (18, 28) is the class clown and tomboy, always vying for attention with her best friend Cindy Lou. It's highly probably that Betty Jean wants to be with Cindy Lou herself, but doesn't even know what those feelings really are. Cindy Lou steals Betty Jean's boyfriend away, which causes a lot of the friction at the prom. She holds a grudge against Cindy Lou until they make up at the 10-year reunion. Betty Jean wears green.
SUZY (18, 28) is sometimes stereotyped as the ditzy blonde because she is always smiling and giggling—nothing ever seems to bother her. Suzy is in love with the lighting operator, Ritchie Stevens, and completely surprised when named prom queen. Her best friend is Missy. Frustrated, sad, hormonal, and pregnant in Act 2. Suzy wears blue.
