IN THE POORMAN CABARET
About the show
Those zany ladies are back for the next chapter in the “Marvelous Wonderettes” series which have been so popular with our audiences!.
IIt’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 Two finds the girls back together as the class of 1958 celebrates their 20-year reunion. The classic pop and rock hits of the seventies 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!
Featuring “I Know A Place/Downtown,” “When Will I Be Loved,” “I’ve Got The Music In Me,” “I Will Survive,” “Love Will Keep Us Together,” and many more hits!
Take advantage of our optional Sunday Brunch, exclusively for the Sunday Matinee performances!
For only an additional $16 per person, enjoy a lovely buffet brunch from Haywoods On The Green that includes drink specials on Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas from the Stage Right Bar! (for those 21 and over).
