COLOURFUL DANCERS- Dancers practice their steps to get ready for their upcoming theatre production Seeker: The Dreamer

Seeker series continues with Seeker: The Dreamer

Jukeboxes, poodle skirts, and rock and roll hits will bring joy to families as the Seeker musical theatre production The Dreamer comes to the stage.

Seeker: The Dreamer will appear at The Word of Life Centre auditorium in Red Deer Dec. 9th through 12th.

The Dreamer is a musical theatre production targeted at teens, but enjoyable for the whole family.

This years’ production is a 50’s and 60’s inspired adventure with original Seeker songs and some classic 50’s songs re-inspired.

“It definitely has the 50’s rock and roll edge to it,” says director and children’s pastor of Word of Life church Dian Layton.

“People are going to have fun. We want to take the audience on an emotional rollercoaster.”

With a cast of over 100, the production is filled with comedy, choreography and a message.

“In all of my stories there is kind of a moral lesson to learn, and this one is about choices, making decisions,” says Layton.

Last year the ‘Seeker’ character created by Layton turned 30 years old. The Seeker story is a seven part allegorical series with The Dreamer being the fifth in the series.

The books are written by Layton, who is not only an author but also a storyteller, playwright and songwriter.

Over the past four years Layton has been professionally producing the Seeker stories as musical productions at Word of Life Church.

The production this year is focused on Seeker’s older sister Moira.

“Seeker’s sister leaves the kingdom and goes out into this world beyond the kingdom,” tells Layton. “She listens to the voices of Trapper and Fantasy who say she is going to have her name in lights, that she is going to be famous, but really it’s all lies and she ends up in a place called Lost Dreams Street.

“In the story Moira has friends: Strength, Honor, Truth, Mercy. They are good character quality friends and she turns her back on all of them.”

Layton says the story is filled with messages like love your family and stay close to home. The Dreamer will also include an interactive intermission.

“We are going to make the intermission kind of an experience for people, too,” says Layton.

The intermission will include lollipops, autographs and possibly a soda shop in the foyer.

“Our goal is to make it a really fun evening for families,” says Layton.

Tickets are $12 each or five for $50. They are available at Scott’s Parable Bookstore on Gasoline Alley or online at www.wordoflife.ca

Word of Life Church is located at the south end of Taylor Dr. on England Way.
