Life Could Be a Dream

created by Roger Bean

SH-BOOM! Take another trip to Springfield and meet the Crooning Crabcakes, the boys banned from the Marvelous Wonderettes’ prom, who enter the Big Whopper Radio contest to realize their dreams of making it to the big time! Trouble comes in the form of Lois, a former Springfield High Song Leader, who arrives to put some polish on the group, but who also broke loveable Eugene's heart years before. While Eugene falls apart, Denny, Wally and Skip fall in love—and hilarious heartaches ensue! Featuring “Earth Angel,” “Unchained Melody,” “Only You,” and 20 more doo-wop hits, LIFE COULD BE A DREAM, performed in our cabaret setting, will leave you laughing, singing and cheering. If you liked The Marvelous Wonderettes, you’ll love LIFE COULD BE A DREAM!
