Life could be a dream for the Crooning Crabcakes, four teens trying to make it big back in the 1960s. Denny, Eugene, Wally, and Skip try their luck at winning the Big Whopper Radio singing contest, sure they’ll steal the limelight and become stars in no time. But when lovely Lois steals their hearts and the boys vie for her attention, the music hits a sour note and life threatens to become a nightmare.
The Seasons Dinner Theatre at Majestic Oaks presents “Life Could Be A Dream” Feb. 14 through March 16.
The show is “not a musical review, but a sweet script with adorable characters that you will love and cheer for. It’s a show you don’t want to end,” said creator Roger Bean, “(It’s) a place you’d just like to stay in for a while.”
This “Dream” may feel particularly close to home since Skip and Lois are played by Anoka native Evan Wilberg and Coon Rapids native Kendall Anne Thompson.
“Life Could Be A Dream” (which Bean created in agreement with Steele Spring Theatrical Licensing) is directed and produced by Thomas McCarthy and Patti J. Hynes-McCarthy with musical direction by Steve Quesnel and choreography by Justine Melchior.
Classic doo-wop songs like “Fools Fall In Love,” “Run Around Sue,” “Earth Angel” and “Unchained Melody” say it all as the Crooning Crabcakes compete for Lois’ lovely heart.
“People should attend for the pure pleasure of stepping back in time to a simpler life and sweet music that doesn’t offend anyone,” Bean said.
The Seasons Dinner Theatre at Majestic Oaks is located at 701 Bunker Lake Blvd., Ham Lake.
Reservations are required for this dinner theater production, but most performances will have tickets available on the day of performance.
