August 4th, 5th and 6th at 7:30PM you are invited to step into Coopersville High School’s Centerstage Theatre and be transported back to Springfield High School’s 1958 senior prom, “Marvelous Dreams.”
The evening’s entertainment was supposed to be provided by The Crooning Crabcakes, but the lead singer (and preacher’s son) Billy Ray was caught smoking behind the school. So, as to not set a bad example, the principal has cancelled the show. The Marvelous Wonderettes are brought in as a last minute substitution.
The Marvelous Wonderettes are Cindy Lou Huffington (Megan Hughes), Missy Miller (Molly Alman), Betty Jean “B.J.” Reynolds (Kristen Pearson) and Suzy Simpson (Kristen Schoenborn). They are all Springfield High School’s (“Go Chipmunks!”) song leaders.
During the show, you will learn about the Wonderettes’ relationships with each other and the loves of their lives between 1958 and 1968. Their stories are told through 33 songs from that decade like “Mr. Sandman”, “Allegheny Moon,” “Heat Wave,” “It’s In His Kiss,” “It’s My Party,” “Son of a Preacher Man,” “Leader of the Pack,” “Rescue Me,” and “Respect.”
Tickets will be $10 per person, $7 for Arts Council Members, $5 for Students K-12, 5 and under are free. Tickets will be available before each show beginning at 6PM.
