2017 Season


“A fun jukebox musical…

these girls know how to throw a party!

–Houston Chronicle


Wonderettes Dream On


Written & Created by Roger Bean

Vocal and Musical Arrangements by Michael Borth


It’s 1969 and the girls are back at Springfield High (Go Chipmunks!) to throw a retirement party for their favorite homeroom teacher, Ms. McPherson. As the girls sing their way through the greatest girl-group hits of the 60s, one says goodbye to search for success and happiness on her own. Act Two finds the girls back together as the class of 1958 celebrates their 20-year reunion with classic pop and rock hits of the 70s for these old friends to catch up on the places life has led them, performed with their own marvelous spin!

“ …soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy."

A Farce by Marc Camoletti

Translated by Beverley Cross and Francis Evans


This 1960’s French farce adapted for the English-speaking stage features self-styled Parisian romancer Bernard, who has Italian, German, and American fiancées, each a beautiful airline hostess with frequent “layovers.” He keeps “one up, one down, and one pending” until unexpected schedule changes bring all three to Paris, and Bernard’s apartment, at the same time - and chaos ensues!
