Olive Branch Theatricals and Raising the Curtain Foundation recently cast their upcoming production of “Life Could Be A Dream,” a musical romp through the ‘60s by Roger Bean that takes the stage at Newhall Family Theatre in July.
Originally set to open in May, the show’s new opening date is July 12. On that date, audiences are encouraged to dress “dapper” in clothing of the period. It’s the perfect time to bring out those lettermen jackets, pomade your hair into a “ducktail” and shuffle in wearing your saddle shoes for this lively show that is sure to get you dancing and singing along.
Cast members include Joey Langford as Denny Varney, Brandon McCravy as Eugene Johnson, Sean Parchejo as Wally Patton, Colin Sickafoose as Duke Henderson, Kate Eberle as Lois Franklin and Tom Lund as Ronnie “Bulls-Eye” Miller. The play takes us on a journey to Springfield, where we meet Denny and The Dreamers, a fledgling doo-wop singing group preparing to enter the Big Whopper Radio contest and realize their dream of making it to the big time. Audiences will be taken back in time by hits of the era like “Tears On My Pillow,” “Earth Angel” and “Unchained Melody,” just to name a few.
Winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Best Musical Award, “Life Could Be A Dream” will leave you laughing, singing and cheering. Performances begin Sunday, July 12 at 7:30 p.m. and continue with performances Saturday July 18 at 2 p.m., Friday, July 24 at 7:30 p.m., followed by 2 p.m. shows on Saturday July 25 and Sunday, July 26.
