For the safety and health of our patrons, cast and staff, masks are required while attending any performance at The Little Theatre On The Square.
This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom and ten year reunion where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy, four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their bouffants! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with over 30 classic ’50’s and ’60’s hits, including Lollipop, Dream Lover, Stupid Cupid and Lipstick on Your Collar. The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this musical trip down memory lane!
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE FOR THIS SHOW
From headlining the longest running show in Las Vegas and starring in the Tony Award winning Broadway musical national tour of Million Dollar Quartet, Daniel Durston has created the first and only tribute show featuring two of the biggest 1950’s icons performing together onstage.
Daniel Durston, who will be remembered from our 2018 production of Million Dollar Quartet is a seasoned performer, having toured the country in professional Broadway musicals for the past 5 years, including an international contract onboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s largest ship, The Escape. Daniel has toured 48 of our country’s states as well as Canada, The Bahamas, Germany and Southampton, London.
Starring as Marilyn, Alisha Soper professionally portrays the iconic blonde bombshell at the world famous Hollywood theme park and has been seen as Marilyn Monroe on Extra TV’s 25th Anniversary Celebration, Lethal Weapon (FOX), Feud (FX) and Case Closed with AJ Mendoza (REELZ).
With hits like Hound Dog, Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend and Love Me Tender, The King & Marilyn brings a recreation of the electrifying music of the 1950’s capturing the unique personalities and charm of these beloved stars.
Covid Update from John Stephens, Executive Producer
Dear Valued Patron:
The Little Theatre On The Square is excited to announce three shows slated to open in the fall of 2021. The King and Marilyn will run October 15th through the 24th for 12 performances. The Marvelous Wonderettes will run November 5th through the 14th for 12 performances. Both of these shows were originally part of the 2020 Summer Season and the Theatre is thrilled to be able to bring them to stage this fall. For Christmas, the Theatre will produce a brand new holiday revue called We Need a “Little” Christmas, running from December 3rd through the 19th for 18 performances. Tickets for these shows will go on sale in August 2021.
Even though mainstage shows will not happen inside the Theatre during the summer of 2021, The Little Theatre is producing 3 FREE outdoor concerts. The First Friday Summer Concert Series at The Little Theatre will kick off June 4th featuring Lexie Dorsett Sharp and Friends (Jordan Cyphert and John Stephens). The July 2nd Concert will feature Heather J. Beck and the Dynamos (Colleen Johnson and Amanda Bonner Church) from our production of Mamma Mia. The August 6th concert performer is TBA. These FREE concerts will be outside, in front of The Little Theatre On The Square. Please bring a lawn chair for first come, first serve seating on the closed off street and kindly wear a mask. Season ticket holders will have a reserved seating area closer to the stage. Concertgoers will be able to enjoy a glass of wine or beer during the show and food trucks will be on site as well.
According to Executive Producer John Stephens, “This summer would have been the 64th season for live theatre in Sullivan. Another postponement is not only painful for us here at the Theatre, but the entire town suffers from the lack of patrons coming to see a show. Unfortunately, with the current indoor seating restrictions (50 people), no firm date on when that may change, and additional production constraints from our union, Actors’ Equity Association, our board decided the safest choice was to plan a shortened fall season instead.”
The Little Theatre On The Square’s office is currently open with limited hours from 9am until noon, Monday-Friday. All patrons who rolled their tickets over from the 2020 season will be mailed directly with three options for those existing customer. Stephens said, “More than a year without theatre and the arts in our community has really hit us hard financially and emotionally, but makes our future reopening that much sweeter.”
