As Gleeful As They Are Marvelous, The Wonderettes

Apr 17, 2023

If you were hoping to take a wild ride back in time to when dresses were as fantastical and colourful as the music, our Senior School musical production of The Marvelous Wonderettes – Glee Club Edition would have had you dancing in the aisles! 

This past week saw our Little Theatre transformed into a toe-tapping, laugh-inducing song and dance parlour that brought our audiences on a rollercoaster ride through a not-so-typical prom in smalltown Springfield during the 1950s. And although it was set in a time long before the cast was even born, The Wonderettes is a deeply delicious and (almost) relatable experience thanks to its catchy pop songs, universal themes, and colourful costumes and sets. 

Congratulations to the more than 25 Senior School cast and crew members who worked so hard to make this musical production happen, and thanks to Becca Guilderson for stepping in to produce and direct the show.  It was simply enchanting!
