Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s The Strolling Scones!
Oct 11 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Ladies and Gentlemen, It's The Strolling Scones!

The GALACTIC PREMIER of the all new original stage play “Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s The Strolling Scones!”, a rockin’-rollin’ 2 act musical comedy with book by L.E. McCullough and music and lyrics by Rick Stockton.

As the legend goes……

The year was 1969. Popular British Invasion band the Strolling Scones were on their first North American tour.

Enroute to their New Year’s Eve gig in snowy Colorado, the band had an “accident” of unknown cause … their VW microbus careened off the road into an ice-choked high mountain lake, where the hapless rockers were frozen instantly. Search and rescue attempts failed and the band was presumed dead.

Now, more than 40 years later, the band has been found, miraculously thawed, and put back out on tour. All still in their Twenties and ready to rock.

Follow Malcolm, Yardley, Stewart, Chelsea, Rainbow Sunshine and Harry as they struggle to adjust to a new millenium and a second chance to rediscover their music – and redefine their lives, loves, and dreams.

Performances Oct. 11, 12 and 13.
