There hasn't been a successful girl group in the modern era since Destiny's Child, but back in the '50s and '60s the power of multiple women's voices could carry a group to the top. Those days are back again in Roger Bean's musical comedy The Marvelous Wonderettes. Members of the titular group are high school seniors in 1958 performing for their senior prom. During their show, the quartet discovers that two of them are dating the same boy, one of them has a secret love, and that all of them are in the running to become this year's prom queen. Ten years later, the group returns to perform for their high school reunion. It's a show packed with the songs of the '50s and '60s, as well as a few laughs. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis opens the second half of its season with The Marvelous Wonderettes. Performances take place Tuesday through Sunday (January 5 to 28) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; Tickets are $18.50 to $89.
