In Life Could Be a Dream, patrons are invited to take a trip to Springfield and meet the Crooning Crabcakes, as they prepare to enter the Big Whopper Radio contest and realize their dreams of making it to the big time! Trouble comes in the form of Lois, who arrives to put some polish on the boys. Denny and Wally fall in love, Eugene falls apart, and along comes handsome heartthrob Skip to send the whole situation spinning. The '60s doo-wop songs say it all: "Fools Fall in Love," "Tears on My Pillow," "Runaround Sue," "Earth Angel," "Stay," "Unchained Melody," "Lonely Teardrops," and "The Glory of Love." Winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Best Musical Award, Life Could Be a Dream is an upbeat, fun stoll down memory lane.
The cast features some exciting young talent - Evan Siegel*, Aaron Catano, Matt Densky* and Rob Rodems as the fabulous boy band - the Ivoryton Playhouse welcomes back Sheila Coyle* who was in Ivoryton in last season's Breaking Up Is Hard To Do. The show is directed by Jacqueline Hubbard, musical director is Jason Wetzel and choreographer is Schuyler Beeman. Set designed by Dan Nischan, lighting design by Marcus Abbott and costumes by Kari Crowther.
