Gentlemen, brush those blue suede shoes, and ladies, put on those crinolines, and doo-wop it over to Cornwell’s Dinner Theater to see “The Marvelous Wonderettes” a musical comedy that brings us back to the good ole’ days of proms,
pouffy hair, and pin-ups.
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 hots including “lollipop”, “Dream Lover”, “Stupid Cupid”, and “Lipstick on Your Collar”. In act Two, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and preform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and 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” runs July 11 through August 31st. For show times and tickets, visit the Cornwell’s Turkeyville website.
