Move Over Jersey Boys, The Wonderettes Are Here!


(August 31, 2023–Chatham, NY) The Mac-Haydn Theatre’s 2023 season concludes with 50s and 60s jukebox musical, “The Marvelous Wonderettes,” running September 7-17.

Created by Roger Bean, “The Marvelous Wonderettes” is a jukebox blast from the past. It’s the night of the 1958 Springfield High School prom, and the night’s entertainment consists of four best friends; Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy. As they navigate life, love and the Prom Queen competition, the girls serenade with the classics from the decade. Ten years later, the girl group reunites stronger than ever, learning that the power of friendship will always keep them together—bonded forever in four-part harmony.

Ashley DeLane Burger makes her directorial debut with the production, following her work on the 2023 sell-out production of “Jersey Boys” as choreographer, and last season’s “A Chorus Line” (Associate Choreographer) and “Forever Plaid” (Choreographer, 2022 BroadwayWorld Award). She is joined by Music Director Eric Shorey and Assistant Choreographer Bella DePaola.

The production will feature lighting design by Andrew Gmoser, costume design by Annie Watson, sound design by Sean McGinley, hair and makeup design by Emily Allen, and props design by Adriana Ayala.

Starring as the four Wonderettes are Stephanie Prestage as Cindy Lou, Rachel Pantazis as Missy, Cydney Gleckner as Suzy, and, making her Mac-Haydn Debut, Adeline Trivers as Betty Jean.

Audiences will hear favorite 50s and 60s hits; featuring over 30 throwback hits like “Mr. Sandman,” “Lollipop,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Lipstick on Your Collar,” “Respect” and “It’s In His Kiss (The Shoop Shoop Song),” “The Marvelous Wonderettes” is guaranteed to have audiences humming along in their seats.
