Snyposis:

Millie’s getting married! At her impromptu bachelorette party, Millie and her best friends dive into age-old questions about love, marriage, and the overwhelming dating game. As the celebration picks up steam and the drinks flow, the girls reveal scintillating secrets about their love lives as they poke fun and challenge each other to take control of their lives. Featuring smash pop-hits from the 1960s such as “My Boy Lollipop,” “I Will Follow Him,” “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me,” and “Hey There Lonely Boy,” this uplifting show reaffirms that during life’s struggles, true friendship will unveil its everlasting strength—and often with a real rockin’ beat!

Millie: Mezzo-Alto. The bride-to-be. The perfect blend of a 60’s homemaker icon, coupled with self-doubts about her cheating fiancé and her ability to deal with it. Her overriding desire for perfection is what stands in the way of achieving a well-balanced and healthy relationship.

Sally: Mezzo-Soprano. Millie’s best friend, and true polar opposite. Sally has a hip, cavalier attitude toward relationships. She is sassy, savvy, and liberated: a world-weary realist whose rose-colored glasses were smashed long ago. It is with Sally’s help and urging that Millie is finally able to face the truth of her relationship.

Florence: Alto-Bass. Overwhelmingly shy, Flo lives her life through what she hears, reads and dreams about. Sassy herself after a bit of alcohol, she bites back when attacked. Flo exemplifies the rules of the times without ever getting what she really wants or needs.

Dee Dee: Mezzo-Soprano. Flo’s cousin from out of town. Dee Dee is an innocent and irrepressible romantic; eager and wide-eyed to learn more about the world, yet unbelieving in the harshness of its realities. A little bit of sugar goes a long way with Dee Dee and her overzealous sweet tooth.

Note: There are intricate harmonies throughout for everyone. Every character has mezzo-pop-belt solos.
