Dreamers Theater Group opens The Sound of Music at DeKalb’s Egyptian Theater on Friday, January 11 at 7 p.m. They will also perform Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m. and on Sunday at 2 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for children. Tickets are available at the door up to one hour before each performance.
The Dreamers group was founded in 1989 by Dolores “Dee” Heuer and is currently led by DeKalb talent fixture Gavin Wilson and Dan Coran of Children’s Community Theater, a separate performing organization that’s been around since 1955 and which for the past couple years has provided the brains and talent behind a popular summer program called Imagination Camp.
Last year Dreamers performed The Last Exhibit, an original play featuring music by Wilson. One night following a performance a couple from out of town, perfect strangers, turned to us to ask about the author and how it was that this writer was in DeKalb instead of New York. What I’m saying is that you get a lot of bang for the buck with this crew–true whether or not I am a proud parent of a Dreamer (which I am).
