Louisville, KY – Highview Arts Center is delighted to present THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES by Roger Bean. From this jukebox musical comedy featuring hits from the 1950’s and 1960’s, a group of highschool seniors are called to perform at the last minute at their senior prom, and then again at their 10-year reunion in Act 2.  Featuring hit songs like “Mr. Sandman,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Needle in a Haystack,” “It’s My Party,” and “Son of a Preacher Man.”


Springfield High Songleaders Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy, rally together to entertain their classmates in four-part harmony. In Act 1, set in 1958, the young women explore the ups and downs of high school, friendships, boyfriends and the pains of unrequited love. In Act 2, a little older and a little wiser, the young women come back together to perform at their 10-year high school reunion! Friendships are mended, love persists, and new adventures await for Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy! 


There will be audience participation suggested! Come to the performance in your finest prom dresses and suits - any time period welcome! There will be a photobooth for “Prom Pictures”, please consider donations of gently used prom dresses that will go towards The Prom Project KY, as well as special VIP seats onstage with the action! The special VIP seating will also come with a Coca-Cola and a sweet treat!


Director’s Comments

The Marvelous Wonderettes is the last show I will work on before I move and I could not have asked for a better show or a better group of people to work with before I leave. I have the pleasure of not only co-directing and choreographing the show, but also performing in it as Suzy. It has been an amazing experience to work with a group of talented and dedicated women who are all passionate about bringing their unique perspectives and talents to the show. Our collaborative rehearsal process has allowed each actor to bring their ideas and personalities to the table, ultimately enhancing both my choreography and Kaitlin's blocking. The chemistry among the cast is simply electric, and I feel incredibly lucky to be a part of such a supportive and empowering team.
