Could Be a Dream' at MBT
The Big Whopper Radio contest is coming up and the Crooning Crabcakes are hitting the stage.
The boys just need a little polish - and a great lead singer - and they'll be ready for the big time.With songs like "Runaround Sue," "The Duke of Earl," "Angel Eyes" and the title song, "Life Could Be a Dream" is sure to rock you back to the 60s for a great time. "There are songs that everyone knows and loves, along with a fun story," said director, Travis W. Walter. "People are going to leave the theater humming."
Written by Roger Bean, "Life Could Be a Dream" runs through May 19 at Meadow Brook Theatre on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester.
The Crooning Crabcakes are played by Lucas Wells (Denny), Mathew Schwartz (Eugene) and Joe Lehman (Wally). Sam Perwin plays Skip Henderson, with Allison Hunt as Lois Franklin.
"Life Could Be a Dream" is directed by Walter, MBT's artistic director, with choreography by Tyrick Wiltez Jones. Terry W. Carpenter is the stage manager with scenic design by Brian Kessler, costumes by Corey Globke, lighting by Reid G. Johnson and sound by Mike Duncan. Music director Daniel Feyer plays keyboards and directs the band, which includes Laurie Burns (reeds), Sig Hepler (guitar), P.J. Vasquez (bass) and Nick Matthews (percussion).
