PRESS: Back with a Bang with the May line-up at The Drama Factory!

Christine Skinner

 

Following a ‘roof-raising’ performance by the Cape of storms, The Drama Factory is back with a bang and a new roof! As always, there’s a salivating line-up to look forward to in May.

The past few weeks have been a challenging experience, but we have been luckier than many who were caught in the storms,” says Sue Diepeveen, Founder of The Drama Factory. We are very grateful to those people who have helped get our shows back on the road so quickly, assisting with the replacement of our roof. We are looking forward to welcoming back our audiences with a great May programme. Look out for the Mother’s Day special on 12 May with The Marvelous Wonderettes.

 

The May line-up is:


The Marvelous Wonderettes

Jukebox musical comedy 9, 10, 11 May at 19h30  

11 and 12 May at 15h00

Tickets cost R200 / R170 (Mother’s Day special on 12 May at R160)

The Marvelous Wonderettes is an Off-Broadway jukebox musical, written by Rodger Bean and it earned Origen Productions two Fleur du Cap Theatre Award nominations from their 2022 run. Audiences will be transported to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where they will meet the Wonderettes: Cindy Lou, Missy, Suzy and Betty Jean - four girls with dreams as big as their crinoline skirts. 


The Wonderettes will thrill audiences with classic hits from the 50’s and 60's that we all love. Hits such as “Lollipop”, “Stupid Cupid”, “Dream Lover”, “Respect”, “You don’t own me” and so much more. Audiences have never had this much fun at prom, and they never will forget this must-take trip down memory lane.

Audiences of all ages at The Drama Factory will love and appreciate this show as they will not only be exposed to a new piece of musical theatre, but they will recognise the songs that either they grew up hearing or their parents or grandparents blasting in the car while driving.
