Back in the Dreamtime is about a 47th high school reunion of 1965 graduates in a small Western Colorado town. The dreams of youthful baby-boomers and nearly 50 years of reality collide as old loves and would-be lovers are reunited, lost opportunities are mourned, and lives are assessed. If you have ever attended a high school reunion, you won’t want to miss this musical! Hilarious and thought-provoking with songs that will stay in your mind for days after the curtain falls.

The talented cast of 11 local actor-singers includes Paula Harper, Greg Peterson, Pam Petersen, Rand Kokernot, Colin Dunbar, Brenda Joyce Coda, Don Foster, Sue Everest, Lenore Cambria, Phyllis Swackhamer, and Amy Michelle Hoyt. Durlin is directing the play with the assistance of Ellen Hutto as musical director, Jenell Wehn on piano and Eames Petersen on guitar. Pam Petersen is vocal director and Lenore Cambria is choreographer.

Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s The Strolling Scones!

Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s The Strolling Scones!

The GALACTIC PREMIERE of the all new original stage play “Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s The Strolling Scones!” Is coming to the Paradise Theater in Paonia, CO Oct. 11-13, 2013.

Show times:
Fri. Oct. 11 & Sat. Oct 12 – 7:30pm; Sun. Oct 13 – 2:00pm matinee.

The play, with book written by New York playwright L.E. McCullough and music and lyrics by Rick Stockton, is an all original 2 act rockin’ – rollin’ musical that follows the fictional Strolling Scones – 1960’s era British invasion band – through their struggles to adjust to the new millennium after being “accidentally” frozen in a VW microbus at the bottom of an ice choked high mountain lake since 1969. Lenore Cambria directs some of Paonia’s most skilled comedic actors through this witty and campy multi-media extravaganza.

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.
