Cabrillo Music Theatre will be presenting The Marvelous Wonderettes on Friday, February 4 through Sunday, February 13, at the 1,800-seat Kavli Theatre at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza.
The Marvelous Wonderettes, a cotton-candy, non-stop musical blast from the past, features songs from the ’50s and ’60s. The show takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes – Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy.
“With all the fun Cabrillo audiences had last year with Roger Bean’s The Andrews Brothers, bringing The Marvelous Wonderettes, another hilarious Bean creation, was an easy decision,” Says Cabrillo’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Carole W. Nussbaum. “With this quartet of multi-talented gals on stage, The Marvelous Wonderettes will be a total blast from the past for the whole family”
