This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom to meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy – 4 girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinolines! In Act 2, the Wonderettes reunite on stage to perform at their 10-year reunion.
Betty Jean – the clown – alto with strong low range
Cindy Lou – the “bad girl” – mezzo soprano with belt
Missy – the over-achiever – soprano with wide range
Suzy – happy-go-lucky – mezzo alto with sweet, soulful sound
This show features 3 and 4-part harmony of over 30 songs from the 1950’s and 1960’s. All characters have a storyline and featured solos, often with the others singing backup harmony. As such, all four actors are on-stage the entire show and will be needed at virtually all rehearsals – making it difficult to work around anyone with significant conflicts.
