Now Playing: The Marvelous Wonderettes at Marietta Theatre Company

Wow, my weekend was full of exciting fun, going back in time with my girls!  First, Friday night we kicked off the weekend seeing a witty musical The Marvelous Wonderettes at the Lyric Studio on the Square (Marietta Theatre Company) in Marietta, Georgia.

The musical had the audience rockin', poppin' and doo-wopping along to the timeless tunes from the 1950s and 1960s. Although those two eras are before my time, still, I knew quite a few songs that were performed.  I consider myself as an old soul since I love listening to songs that came out before I was born.  My girls knew a couple of the tunes. However, they enjoyed the show as well, pointing out the characters that were their favorite.



I admire the fact how the show got the audience involved, which made it a memorable, yet hilarious experience.  Also, how the songs sang went with what was currently going on with the characters life.

Written and created by Roger Bean, the tribute to the timeless tunes from the 1950s and 1960s is set to take audiences on a melodic journey back in time when boys, big hair, and bigger singing dreams occupied the minds of the Springfield High School Wonderettes.

In the midst of vying for prom queen and the hearts of their crushes, The Wonderettes are asked to entertain their peers at the 1958 Springfield High School prom.  Cindy Lou (Meaghan Paetkau), Missy (Chelcy Cutwright), Betty Jean (Sarah Watkins) and Suzy (Collean Cooke) deliver in their solos and four-part renditions of 1950s pop hits.  Under the creative direction of Elizabeth Weaver, Laurel Henson, and Nicole Gray, The Marvelous Wonderettes is a musical mashup featuring over 20 chart-topping songs from the decades that birthed popular music in American culture.

  3. I was an old soul too and listen to music before my time when young.. I still do. I am not a big Elvis fan like my mom was when she was alive but I went to an Elvis tribute concert once and it was really awesome!
