To get a head start on the new school year, ART Station has invited well-known Atlanta director and choreographer Karen Beyer to direct The Marvelous Wonderettes, Caps & Gowns, a light-hearted musical that will take theater-goers back to the 1958s. All shows run Thursdays through Sundays from July 10 – 27 and tickets are available online at http://www.artstation.org/ or by calling 770-469-1105.
The Marvelous Wonderettes, Caps and Gowns are four teenage girls, played by Alana Cheshire, Laura Floyd, Lisa Manuli & Tania Yegelwel, all with hopes and dreams as big as their petticoats. We’re back in 1958, and it’s time for the Wonderettes to graduate in this delightful sequel to the smash off-Broadway hit! Join Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy as they sing about their final year in high school, celebrate with their fellow classmates and teachers, and prepare for their next step toward a bright future. Act Two zooms ahead to 1968, where the girls perform as bride and bridesmaids to celebrate Missy’s marriage to Mr. Lee! Featuring “Rock Around the Clock,” “At the Hop,” “Dancing in the Street,” “River Deep, Mountain High,” and 25 more hits, Wonderettes: Caps & Gowns will have you cheering for more! “Delightful and nostalgic – a guaranteed good time!” –Broadway World. The show’s musical direction is by Patrick Hutchison.
