Smouldering Songs Set The Scene For Drayton Entertainment’s Smokey Joe’s Cafe

Drayton Entertainment’s final show this season at the Drayton Festival Theatre is the iconic Smokey Joe’s Café.  This production is performed completely through song.  The singers bring the heat with songs like Ruby Baby and they set the stage on fire with their rendition of Jailhouse Rock, but it’s the smooth songs like Hound Dog that smoulder throughout the show.


All of the songs featured in this musical are written by the famous songwriting duo Jerry Leiber and Mike Stroller, who had many hits throughout the 1950’s. The songs in Smokey Joe's Cafe are accompanied by choreography that brings the story of each performance to life.  The mix of solo and ensemble songs along with the live band on stage, sets the scene of local nightclub from that era.
