I Was A Drama Rat In My Youth

I was reminded by an old friend today that there was once a time when I was on the big stage and performed without an ounce of stage fright. I appreciate him reminding me of those time. 

A rollicking musical based on the poem by Robert Service. Set in a Yukon saloon during the 1890s gold rush, it tells the story of prospector Dan McGrew, his sweetheart Lou and a mysterious stranger.
