High school prom musical features ’50s and ’60s hit tunes
County Players continues its 57th season with The Marvelous Wonderettes on Friday, Nov. 7, at 8 p.m. This off-Broadway hit takes the audience to the 1958 Springfield High School prom to meet the Wonderettes, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. The girls perform such classic ’50s and ’60s songs as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “It’s My Party,” and over 20 other hits.
Anna Marie Paolercio directs this musical comedy. The cast includes Cory Ann Fasano-Paff, Lizzy Neiman, Amy Schaffer, and Alyssa Thomas.
Subsequent performances will be Nov. 8, 14, 15, 21, and 22 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults and $19 for seniors/children under 12.
