Tickets are selling fast for Theatre Victoria’s production of The Marvelous Wonderettes. This hit off‐Broadway musical takes you back
to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes – Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy, four girls with
hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts and voices to match! As we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the
girls performing the classic hits of the 50’s and 60’s, songs such as “Lollipop”, “Dream Lover”, “Stupid Cupid”, “Lipstick on Your
Collar”, “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me”, “It’s My Party”, “Leader of the Pack”, “It’s In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song)” and so many
more! You’ve never had this much fun at a prom and you will never forget The Marvelous Wonderettes – a must‐take musical trip
down memory lane! This production features the amazing triple‐threat talents of Patricia Balmer (Cindy Lou), Melissa Jecker (Suzy),
Leilani Valdes (Betty Joe) and Tanya Wilkinson (Missy). This is the first production for Patricia and Melissa with Theatre Victoria.
Leilani was last seen in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee last February and Tanya was seen in the summer musical hit
