CEFO is proud to announce that the 2016 Spring production of The Marvelous Wonderettes, an off-Broadway smash hit musical, was a great success. This highly entertaining show, set in the 1950s and '60s, featured a tight ensemble cast and iconic songs from the era. The production featured local professional adult actresses. All proceeds from the show were donated to CEFO to help counter the effects of poverty on students within the Ottawa Catholic School Board.

The Marvelous Wonderettes ran at the Gladstone Theatre from May 11th to 14th, 2016. Showtimes were Wednesday to Saturday at 7:30 pm with an extra Saturday matinee at 2:30 pm.
