Written and created by Roger Bean, THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom and introduces four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As they share stories about their lives and loves, the girls treat the audience to performances of such classic '50s and '60s songs as "Lollipop," "Dream Lover," "Stupid Cupid," "Lipstick On Your Collar," "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me," "It's My Party" and over 20 other classic hits. THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES is an unforgettably charming musical experience.
"The show is chock-full of some of the greatest tunes of the 1950's and 60's – all of those wonderful oldies from the days when music was really music! It is a lovely story about growing up and how we move forward. This 'coming of age' experience is common to all of us and will resonate with every generation," says Amanda Folena, Broadway By The Bay's Artistic Director. "It's a fun, effervescent evening at the theatre."
The 2012 season is the second for Broadway By The Bay at the 1250-seat Fox Theatre located in the heart of downtown Redwood City. The historic theatre is located in close proximity to a wide selection of popular restaurants and bars, as well as several nearby public parking areas and a Cal Train stop, making it convenient for theatergoers to enjoy pre-show dining or post-show libations.
