We've seen "The Marvelous Wonderettes," the female singing group that entertained at the high school prom when the previously announced boy band was axed — twice in fact — but whatever happened to those unfortunate guys?
Well, Laguna Playhouse patrons will find out, beginning this weekend and continuing through Aug. 29 as the 1950s return with their own show, "Life Could Be a Dream."
Writer-director Roger Bean unveiled his "Marvelous Wonderettes" two seasons ago, the story line being that they were last-minute replacements for a quartet of guys who got caught smoking in the boys' restroom. They proved so popular they returned to Laguna last year for "Winter Wonderettes."
Bean's "Life Could Be a Dream" throws the spotlight on the Crooning Crabcakes, the guys who were booted from the Springfield High School prom, making it possible for the Wonderettes to perform.
The boys have one more chance at fame and fortune — an audition at a local radio contest. Will they pull it off this time?
