News   Kids Can Go Free at Off-Broadway's Marvelous Wonderettes
For a limited time, the new Off-Broadway musical The Marvelous Wonderettes, which is currently playing the Westside Theatre, will offer complimentary tickets to children ages 16 or younger.

Beginning Dec. 10 and running through Dec. 22, adults who purchase a regularly priced ticket will be eligible to receive a free ticket for an accompanying child.

Wonderettes, according to press notes, "features the iconic sounds of the fifties and sixties in a journey back to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where the Wonderettes — Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy — are four young girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts." Songs included in the new show are "Lollipop," "Dream Lover," "Stupid Cupid," "Lipstick on Your Collar," "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me," "It's My Party" and "It's in His Kiss."

The creative team also includes set designer Mike Carnahan, costume and wig designer Bobby Pearce, lighting designer Jeremy Pivnick, sound designer Cricket S. Myers, musical director Brian William Baker and choreographer Janet Miller.
