Rehearsals begin for new EPT play

Ennis Public Theatre Director Shelley Aubrey says she prefers musicals to dramas. The Ennis Public Theatre is in rehearsals for the upcoming attraction The Marvelous Wonderettes. The Marvelous Wonderettes is a musical comedy from the pen of Roger Bean and features pop music from the 1950s and ‘60s, including such songs as “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “It’s My Party,” and “It’s In His Kiss.” The original off-Broadway musical opened in 2008 at New York’s Westside Theatre and ran through 2010. The show was conceived by Bean, however, in 1999. Director Shelley Aubrey, a former actor in a number of successful touring productions, said that musicals are some of her favorite productions to stage. Acting still stimulates her creativity, Aubrey maintains, but today her heart lies in directing. Read stories like this and more in your latest edition of The Ennis News.
