The Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati concludes its season with the regional premiere of Marvelous Wonderettes: Caps & Gowns, which takes you to the Springfield High School graduation of the the Wonderettes, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts.

This play has extended its run from May 1-19 to June 1. A month sounds like plenty of time to pick a date, but you better act quick so you don’t miss out! Call the box office at (513) 421-3555, go to ETC Box Office (1127 Vine Street), or online. For those who find shows cost prohibitive, be sure to check out the discounts page and see if you qualify for an offer.

I’m excited about this play because it features the girls performing 20+ classic hits from the ’50s and ’60s. My friends know my favorite movie is Shag, which is set in 1964 with four girls taking one last sun, fun weekend to Myrtle Beach to meet boys, dance, and go to wild parties. I have no doubt, I’ll be singing (under my breath) along with the Marvelous Wonderettes on opening night!

Disclosure: I received two complimentary tickets to opening night.
