‘What Dreams May Come’ opens this week at Orcas Center

Grace McCune and Jake Perrine have coaxed the Rock on the Rock Choir (Moulin Rouge, Across The Universe, Rock of Orcas, Teatro Titikookoo, Cirque Us) out of hibernation for an all-new extravaganza.

With nine performances on Center Stage this May, “What Dreams May Come” will feature multiple choir ensembles, multiple dance ensembles, and a live band, plus all the creativity, heart and surprises you have come to expect.

“What Dreams May Come” thematically explores the collective consciousness and many colors of the events of the past few years. It encompasses the usual cabaret collection songs, but this time approximately half of the songs are originals written by local songwriters! Curated from Orcas’ diverse talent pool, Grace and Jake have made band and choir arrangements of songs you may not know…by people you do! The remaining songs will be timely tunes by popular artists.

Tiffany Loney, Chelsea Sherman, and Katie Zwilling have tackled the choreography that will shape the dancing on the stage. Rock on the Rock Choir was birthed by Grace McCune many years ago as a class to give singers of all experience levels a chance to learn to sing together. Over time, it has grown into “the bunny slope of musical theatre on Orcas”, offering people of all ages a chance to expand their performance horizons through singing, dancing, acting, music, performance, aerial acrobatics, and technical theatre in a class setting.

You will laugh, you will cry, you will sing along, and you will contemplate What Dreams May Come?

Performances run weekends May 4-20 at 7pm on Orcas Center’s Main Stage. Ticket prices range from $15-$59. Call 360-376-2281 ext 100, or visit www.orcascenter.org for tickets and more information.
