AU Boze Lyric Theatre presents The Marvelous Wonderettes

Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University’s Boze Lyric Theatre will present “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” premiering Thursday, April 12 at Byrum Hall. Showtimes include evening performances April 12, 13, and 14 at 7:30 p.m. and a matinee performance on April 15 at 2:30 p.m.

“The Marvelous Wonderettes” provides nostalgia-filled evening with more than 30 classic hits from the ’50s and ’60s. Meet the Marvelous Wonderettes as they form a singing group, save the day at their high school prom, and then reunite a decade later. Onstage seating presents an up-close experience with the actors and music. The show was written and created by Roger Bean, with musical arrangements by Brian William Baker and vocal arrangements by both. Orchestrations are by Michael Borth.

“I worked with Roger Bean, the creator of the show, at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater the year after he wrote the show,” said director David Coolidge, assistant professor of musical theatre. “I got to see the progression of the show from Milwaukee to its life on Broadway, so I’ve been excited to direct it when we have the right people for it.”

He continued, “This is a great mix of young actresses. There’s just four of them in the show, three sophomores and one junior. Their comedic timing is incredible, and they work really well off of each other.”

Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors/military, and $5 for children and students from other schools. For more information, contact the Byrum Hall box office at (765) 641-4140.
