Springfield Contemporary Theatre will present the Springfield-area premiere of the musical "The Marvelous Wonderettes" June 5-21 at SCT Center Stage, 431 S. Jefferson #136 (corner of Pershing and Robberson).  Josh Inmon directs and choreographs this production, with musical direction by Alex Huff, and costumes -- which are "fantastic," says Josh--by Lou Schaefer. This smash off-Broadway hit takes to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts!
