It’s 1969 and “The Marvelous Wonderettes” (prom queen Cindy Lou, tomboy Betty Jean, goody two-shoes Missy & class clown Suzy) are back to throw a retirement party for their favorite teacher, set to the greatest girl-group hits of the 60’s (“Gimme Some Lovin”, “It’s Your Thing”). Act Two finds the girls back together as the class of 1958 celebrates their 20-year reunion as one of the Wonderettes hits it big as musical superstar! Classic pop and rock hits of the 70’s (“We are Family”, “I Will Survive”) provide the perfect soundtrack for these old friends to catch up on the places life has led them, all performed with their own marvelous spin!
Sandra Bremer returns to direct and choreograph after helming the first two versions of the show, “The Marvelous Wonderettes” and “Winter Wonderettes”. WMU’s Jeremiah Downes serves as Music Director.
Artistic director Jeremy Koch has put together a cast of Farmers Alley Theatre favorites to portray the Wonderettes. Whitney Weiner plays the edgy prankster Betty Jean. WMU Alum Mallory King is the ditzy blonde, Suzy. Missy Karle will keep everything in order as Teacher’s Pet, Missy. And NYC performer Julia Burrows (star of the upcoming Fathom event movie “Buttons”) roams the halls as the self-obsessed beauty queen, Cindy Lou.
