This evening of pure, frothy fun will have you boppin’ to over fifty well-known songs that topped the 1960s charts: Respect, You Can’t Hurry Love, Say A Little Prayer, and more!  When Cindy, a laundromat attendant, receives a letter from her pen-pal boyfriend ending their romance, her stylish guardian angels arrive on the scene, determined she’ll do more than wishin’ and hopin’.

CINDY (Vocal Range: Low f, belt to B-flat, easy mix to D)
Strong alto and a sweet sounding mix. Character Description: A sweet, personable possibly gawky girl. Impressionable and by turn optimistic and depressed, she grows in confidence as the play concludes. Strong comedic timing and dance ability.

Strong, controlled pop/rock belt. Tough R&B wail plus nice mix for backup. Character Description: A tough cookie. Larger than life, brassy redhead with a sharp tongue and a heart of gold. Flashy dresser. Strong comedic timing and dance ability.
