Gilligan's Island ! ? !!! ? !

Rover Dramawerks announces
The Regional Premiere of
Gilligan's Island: The Musical


Let's let that just sink in for a minute.



Ok, Yes. The utterly impossible has happened.
A small craft on a brief sunny sightseeing tour less
than an hour and a half from land is overwhelmed
by rough seas and all are washed safely ashore
on an unknown uncharted tropical paradise.
On board are a mixture of a fabulously wealthy couple
whose toothpicks are bigger and better financed
than the very boat they arrived on, a glamorous movie star
in evening attire, a college professor able to craft
antigravity perpetual motion subatomic transponders
from coconuts and bamboo, and the quintessential
Midwest girl from next door that packed nothing
that covers her midriff. (Oh, heaven thank you, Sherwood!)

But that is not the impossible part.

After 40 years of syndication
-- mind you the commercial television itself is only 10 years older! --
There is now a certifiably hilarious live musical of it.

No, not but I do still have a Google Alert for that.

We tracked down Sherwood Schwartz's son and co-writer
Lloyd J. Schwartz in L.A. and worked out the
Regional Premiere for this summer.

Sure, it meant bumping another show, Grotesque Lovesongs
by Don Nigro, but after sedating the production team and sitting
them through just six and a half hours of the DVD box set

we were able to fool the guys that Dawn Wells would
actually be here (Oh, if only....<sigh!>) and then we promised
all the ladies that they get to dress like Ginger with
Mrs. Howell's diamonds, they wholeheartedly agreed.

We're still working on how we handle this when the drug wears off.
We'll get back to you on that.

Anyway, make plans now -- no wait, heck with that!
Buy TIckets Now! - people are already getting them online!

And come see us for the single most fun summer excursion in town!
