SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla. - Fox 4 Rising's Alex Butler checks out The Marvelous Wonderettes. It's a musical comedy recently played off broadway at the Westside Theater in New York. The show, which uses pop songs from the '50s and '60s to tell its story, pays homage to the high school Songleader squads of the 1950s. 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.

The songs they sing during the course of the musical include: "Lollipop"; “Dream Lover”; “Stupid Cupid” and more.
