The Marvelous Wonderettes:

Dream On

It’s 1969, and The Marvelous Wonderettes are back at Springfield High (Go Chipmunks!) to throw a retirement party for their favorite homeroom teacher.


As the girls sing their way through the greatest girl-group hits of the '60s and bid Ms. McPherson a fond farewell, one of the Wonderettes reveals she’ll also be saying goodbye to search for success and happiness on her own. Act II finds the girls back together as the class of 1958 celebrates their 20-year reunion.


The classic pop and rock hits of the '70s provide the perfect soundtrack for these old friends to catch up on the places life has led them, all performed with their own marvelous spin!


Songs in this joyous, hit-filled jukebox musical include: Gimme Some Lovin’, I Know a Place/Downtown, L-O-V-E, For Once in My Life, When Will I Be Loved, Hurting Each Other/More Today Than Yesterday, You’re No Good, I’ve Got the Music In Me, Listen to the Music, Love Will Keep Us Together, I Can See Clearly Now/I Am Woman, I Will Survive, Band of Gold, Superstar, Everlasting Love, We Are Family




Character Descriptions for THE MARVELOUS WONDERETTES: Dream On:


  • Betty Jean (29, 38) is the class clown and tomboy of the group, best friends with Cindy Lou. Always quick with a comeback, Betty Jean has a loving heart that is easy to break. She finally leaves her philandering husband, and discovers the inner strength to survive on her own. (Alto with strong low range.)

  • Cindy Lou (29, 38) was always the “prettiest girl” at Springfield High. While her hopes were previously shattered, she takes one final chance to make her childhood dreams of stardom come true. Sassy, wicked, with a heart of gold. (Mezzo Soprano with belt– sings lead on many songs.)

  • Missy (29, 38) is the over-achiever of the group, keeping control of everything in her path as the group’s organizing force. With her new husband Mr. Lee watching from the front row, this type-A personality reveals that she has a baby on the way, and all bets are off as she prepares for the adventure of a lifetime. (Soprano with wide range and very high vocals.)

  • Suzy (29, 38) is giddy, happy-go-lucky, slightly ditzy, and best friends with Missy. Forever in love with her childhood sweetheart (now husband), she worries that her marriage might be on the rocks as the Matchbox plant in town closes and husband Ritchie is forced to look for work out of town. (Mezzo Alto with a sweet, soulful sound and big belts.)

  • Setting: Springfield High School Gymnasium, 1969 and 1978.
