Medleys of Melodies Explode on Stage in Sh-Boom! Life Could Be A Dream

The Drayton Festival Theatre is reading to launch you into the past with the release of Sh-Boom! Life Could Be A Dream, This musical production shines a light on a simpler time. when  The days when Rock and Roll was all about harmonies and everyone wanted to be on the radio.  This story starts with Denny and Eugene, a duo wanting to win a singing contest they heard about on the local radio station.  In order to find a way to get on the contestants' list the duo soon becomes a trio, which then evolves into a quartet and then some. 

Keeping the singing group, and the audience, intrigued is the radio's Disc Jockey Bullseye Miller. Bullseye Miller's role is portrayed by Drayton Entertainment Alumni Neil Aitchison. Neil Aitchson brings the same type of enthusiasm to the DJ booth as he did for his role as the wise-cracking Mountie Constable Archibald F. Inkster in Sorry…I’m Canadian and Canadian Legends.

In this production, Neil channels his real-life experience as a popular radio personality in order to play DJ Bullseye Miller, and takes audiences on a joyous jive down memory lane that recreates the magic of rock ‘n roll’s heyday: “Fools Fall in Love,” “Tears on my Pillow,” “Runaround Sue,” “Earth Angel,” “Stay,” “Unchained Melody,” “Lonely Teardrops,” “The Glory of Love,” and more. Don’t miss it!

This musical keeps hands clapping and toes tapping through a medley of jukebox hits. Everything from Get a Job to Unchained Melody is covered in this songbook of golden oldies and of course Sh-Boom! Life Could Be A Dream is a constant melody and theme throughout the show.
