Life Could Be a Dream, a spinoff of the Off-Broadway show The Marvelous Wonderettes, will play a limited engagement through Nov. 20.
Directed and written by Bean, the cast includes Doug Carpenter as Skip, Ryan Castellino as Wally, Jim Holdridge as Eugene, Daniel Tatar as Denny and Jessica Keenan Wynn as Lois.
The musical, according to La Miranda, is "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 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!"
Other members of the creative team include choreographer Lee Martino, musical director Michael Paternostro, associate director Daniel Tatar, set designer Tom Buderwitz, costume designer Shon LeBlanc, lighting designer Luke Moyer, sound designer Joshua Bessom and production stage manager Vernon Willet.
