The University of Alabama’s professional summer theatre, SummerTide, will bring a “heatwave” to Gulf Shores during its 13th season. The cast of SummerTide will present The Marvelous Wonderettes, the Off-Broadway hit musical by Roger Bean. Celebrate the 1958 Springfield High School prom with the Wonderettes, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the girls performing such classic ‘50s and ‘60s songs as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “It’s My Party,” and over 20 other classic hits!
Ring of Fire director Stacy Alley returns this summer to direct the production. “I have wanted to share this hilarious show with the Gulf Shores community for a few years now and this seems like the perfect time to do so!” Alley hopes the show will bring back wonderful memories for most of the audience and expose a younger generation to the fun songs.
The Marvelous Wonderettes will run June 3 to July 1, 2016 at the George C. Meyer Performing Arts Center. Tickets are available for purchase at SummerTide.org or by calling the George C. Meyer Performing Arts Center box office after May 30 at 251.968.6721.
