Book and lyrics by William Gleason. Music by Diane Leslie.
Cast: 7m., 3w. (extras.) The New York Post calls it "A real cool cat…" See for yourself in this smashing musical. Billy Dee Bumpers, the 1950s rock singing star, who back then was about to eclipse Elvis, suddenly disappeared and hasn't been seen for nearly 30 years. The last time anyone saw this dynamic singer, he was trying to scramble up into the vast attic over the auditorium to get away from his frenzied admirers—but there was nothing up there except a giant air-conditioning system! As the curtain rises, the time is now and a new generation is having a dance. The excitement creates so much heat that it blows the antiquated air-conditioning system. An investigation reveals that someone is frozen in the huge freon tube. The someone turns out to be the missing Billy Dee Bumpers! A team of experts defrosts Billy Dee and it seems that he's been in suspended animation. The great rock star is alive! Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 2 hours.
