La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and McCoy Rigby Entertainment are thrilled to present Life Could Be a Dream, written and directed by Roger Bean (The Marvelous Wonderettes), with musical direction by Michael Paternostro, choreography by Lee Martino and featuring the original cast who performed in both the Hudson Theatre and Laguna Playhouse productions. That’s Doug Carpenter as Skip, Ryan Castellino as Wally, Jim Holdridge as Eugene, Daniel Tatar as Denny and Jessica Keenan Wynn as Lois.
From the “marvelous” mind of creator Roger Bean, comes another trip to Springfield where we meet the “Crooning Crabcakes,” the boy group banned from the Springfield High School prom which made it possible for The Marvelous Wonderettes to perform there. Now in an era before “American Idol,” and “Star Search,” the guys get one more chance at fame and fortune as Denny and his friend Eugene form a singing group so they can enter and win the local radio contest on Big Whopper Radio and realize their dreams of making it to the big time!
With the help of their best friend Wally and their new friend Skip, this is the best quartet of singers since, well, you know who! Trouble comes in the form of Lois, who arrives to help put some polish on the group but who also broke Eugene's heart many years before. As Eugene falls apart, Skip, Wally and Denny fall in love - and hilarity and heartaches ensue.
Featuring such classic songs as “Stay” (Just a Little Bit Longer),” “Runaround Sue,” “The Great Pretender,” “Tears On My Pillow,” “Unchained Melody,” “Earth Angel,” “The Glory of Love,” and of course the title song, Life Could Be a Dream is another musical trip down memory lane that will leave you laughing, singing and cheering - let’s hear it for the boys!
Show dates are October 28 - November 20, 2011. Click Here for tickets and more information.
