The Marvelous Wonderettes

Kyle Pope
Tuesday-Thurs. 7:30 p.m. Friday-Sat. 8 p.m. Sat.-Sun. p.m. , Thursday May 09 | $38-$42

Crisp colors, hefty hairspray, and puffy petticoats galore! The Wonderettes return in the regional premiere of The Marvelous Wonderettes: Caps and Gowns, the highly anticipated sequel to Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati’s best selling show of all time. Written by Roger Bean, the play continues the story of these four girls, first introduced to Cincinnati during ETC’s 2009-2010 season and again with Winter Wonderettes. Caps and Gowns plays May 1-19, 2013 and is directed by D. Lynn Meyers.
John Goering is the Premiere Sponsor, and Judith Postler is the Design Sponsor.

 

Spanning the decade between 1958 and 1968, Cindy Lou, Betty Jean, Missy, and Suzy are high school seniors who begin the play on their graduation day. The girls recap their years spent at Springfield High by leading the school in some favorite tunes such as “Rockin’ Robin” and “Dedicated to the One I Love.” Act two finds the group reunited ten years later, more mature but still the best of friends. The singing continues as the girls share in the joys and difficulties they have faced since high school. Featuring over thirty classic ‘50s and ‘60s songs, this upbeat comedy follows the Wonderettes’ captivating journey into adulthood.

 

“The idea of The Marvelous Wonderettes: Caps & Gowns is about a celebration of a time and a celebration of the music,” says ETC Producing Artistic Director D. Lynn Meyers. “The Wonderettes are four very different American girls embracing a dream that brings them together. When you see an old picture, you never get to know what the subjects are thinking,” she continues. “The show is like living a photograph out loud.”
