Rehearsals are underway for the Opera House Theatre Players opening show for the 28th season. It is a cute little musical-comedy called “Marvelous Wonderettes ‘58”. The musical will be presented for three performances on Thursday, Nov. 17; Friday, Nov. 18; and Saturday, Nov 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Jefferson Playhouse.
The smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet Betty Jean, played by Jennifer Dean; Cindy Lou, played by Hannah Howard; Missy, played by Penny Mann; and Suzy, played by Stacey Davis…four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop”, “Dream Lover”, “Stupid Cupid”, and “Lipstick On Your Collar”. We learn about the highs and the lows the girls have experienced in the past, and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together.
Tickets are on sale now online at www.JeffersonOperaHouseTheatrePlayers.com. or the former Lulu Boutique on Polk Street. Adults are $18 and school students are $15 and may be purchased by credit card or Paypal.
