About “The Dreamers”
“The Dreamers” is set in Judy’s garage where her band of old rockers practice. They are anxiously awaiting word of a possible record contract and tour. When Judy’s long lost younger sister arrives the band is thrown into chaos, and threatened with dissolution. Can Guardian Angels sent by Elvis himself save the band?
About the Time of Your Life Players (TYLP)
In 2004 a group of seniors, age 55 and over, formed The Time of Your Life Players. “The Dreamers” is the sixth original musical comedy that has been presented by The Time of Your Life Players. TYLP’s group of writers, directors, and actors is dedicated to educate and entertain from a senior perspective, and to demonstrate that one can lead a creative life at any age.
