Story Synopsis

It’s senior prom at Springfield High School in 1958 and the contracted band has cancelled their performance! What to do?  When called upon to perform at their senior prom as a last minute replacement, Springfield High Songleaders, Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy, rally together to entertain their classmates in four-part harmony.

Ten years later “The Marvelous Wonderettes” are back to entertain everyone for the night of their class reunion, but as soon as the lights come up it’s clear that there’s trouble in paradise. The girls come to grips with their personal relationships and worldly troubles through singing beautiful harmonies once again.

This is a high energy show with your favorite songs from the 1950’s and 60’s including “Mr. Sandman”, “Lollipop”, “Lipstick on Your Collar”, “Wedding Bell Blues”, “Leader of the Pack”, and “RESPECT”, and many more.

Desert Opera Theatre Announces


Happy Days – A New Musical

Goodbye gray skies, hello blue! Happy days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the unforgettable “King of Cool” Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures’ television series, HAPPY DAYS – A New Musical reintroduces one of America’s best loved families, the Cunninghams, and the days of 1959 Milwaukee complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops, and jukebox sock-hoppin’.

The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hang-out, Arnold’s, is in danger of demolition, so the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and tv-worthy wrestling match. This perfectly family-friendly musical will have you rockin’ and rollin’ all week long!

HAPPY DAYS – A New Musical has a book by the legendary Garry Marshall. Music and Lyrics by Oscar Award®-winning composer Paul Williams. Directed by Gordon Greenberg. Music Arrangements and Music Supervision by John McDaniel.
