The Marvelous Wonderettes UK Tour

 The Off Broadway musical The Marvelous Wonderettes looks as though it could be heading to the UK for a national tour in the autumn.

The Wonderettes are Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy: four high school girls who plan their futures at the 1958 Highfield School prom, then meet up again ten years later to see if their lives turned out as expected.

The musical has a similar style to Dreamboats and Petticoats as it tells the story of the Wonderettes by using music from the 50s and 60s including “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)”

It is to be directed by the writer and director, Roger Bean, and is set to open in September for a twelve week run. Touring dates and venues soon to be announced.
