Mark Frost will be directing along with Cheryl Kekel, and Gary Kekel is the musical director. The show will run for two weekends, starting Jan. 24. Music rehearsals commence in September. Characterization rehearsals start in December.

The cast consists of four males and one female. The males vocal range is from bass/baritone through tenor, but all probably should be comfortable singing falsetto. The female should be a mezzo or soprano. There is considerable performance-type dancing, as most of the numbers are choreographed, so those auditioning should be prepared to demonstrate basic dance ability, read from the script, and interact with others. Come prepared to sing any song, preferably in the style of the show, that demonstrates your range and ability. The age of the cast should be in, or pass for being in, their 20s.

"Life Could be a Dream" is an entertaining musical, telling the story of "The Crooning Crabcakes" a singing group who try to find their fame and fortune (starting in their very own basement) by entering a radio talent contest. The show features classic songs from the early 1960's such as "Stay (just a little Bit Longer)," "Runaround Sue," "The Great Pretender," "Tears On My Pillow, "Earth Angel" etc. For more information or to schedule a private audition contact 330-332-9688 or
