The Marvelous Wonderettes is a jukebox musical comedy by Roger Bean. This exciting musical has played off-Broadway at the Westside Theatre in New York, and is now playing at the Historic Owen Theatre in Branson from January 28 through February 14, 2021. The show, which features pop songs from the 1950s and 1960s as a vehicle to tell its story, pays homage to the high school Songleader squads of the 50s. When called upon to perform at their senior prom as a last minute replacement, Springfield High Songleaders Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy, rally together to entertain their classmates in four-part harmony.
The musical includes the songs “Lollipop”, “Dream Lover”, “Stupid Cupid”, “Lipstick on Your Collar”, “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me”, “It’s My Party”, and “It’s In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)” and over 25 more beloved tunes that audiences will love!
