Carson Valley Community Theatre presents “The Marvelous Wonderettes” written and created by Roger Bean.

This off-broadway hit transports the audience to the 1958 Springfield High school prom where they meet 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,” Director Lucille Rao said.

All performances will be held at the CVIC Hall in Minden.

Performance dates are 7:30 p.m. July 18, 23, 24 and 25, and 2 p.m. July 19 and 26. Tickets are on sale at http://www.showtix4U.com or 866-967-8167 and at the CVCT box office, 1572 Highway 395, Minden or 775-292-0939. Box office is opened Tuesday thru Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Advance ticket prices are $18 general, $16 senior/student and $20 at the door.
