It is the greatest hits of the late \u201860s and \u201870s. [It\u2019s] all about taking the audience down memory lane,\u201d said the director.\r\n\r\nThe director\/choreographer has never worked on The Marvelous Wonderettes series before, but it\u2019s clear to him that this is a celebration of the music. Laney has been working tirelessly to show the audience all the fun there is to be had in this musical celebration, and he felt especially inspired by the disco songs.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe disco music is great,\u201d Laney said. \u201cAllows for the choreography to open up and go a bit wild.\u201d\r\n\r\nWith infectious dance moves that bring to life such beloved classics as the carefree \u201cI\u2019ve Got the Music In Me,\u201d the romantic \u201cL-O-V-E\u201d and the empowering \u201cI Will Survive,\u201d the show will entertain anyone looking for a good time.
