"The Marvelous Wonderettes," (Part 1 of 2), Priscilla Beach Theatre, Priscilla Beach, Manomet, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA



"The Marvelous Wonderettes" opens the 2017 performance season at Priscilla Beach Theatre (PBT) on May 5th. This blog post is from the first of two full dress rehearsals I attended.

"The show takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where you meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy. They entertain you with songs from the 1950s and 1960s. Songs include "Lollipop", "Dream Lover", "Stupid Cupid". These four girls will share their hopes and dreams while taking you on a musical trip down memory lane." Source: PBT

For the photographically inclined readers, for this show I borrowed a Leica X fixed lens camera.  It has an APS-C sized sensor, shutter speed set at 1/250 for all images, apertures were variable but generally around f/2.0, ISO variable but generally around 200.
