Caffeine Dreams

A rockin’ little tempest in a coffee shop

Media Attention & Mentions

Caffeine Dreams was produced by the Sun Prairie (Wis.) Civic Theatre in December 2013. Despite cold weather and the close proximity to the holidays (for a show that has nothing to do with Christmas), over 600 seats were sold and filled over a 5-show run. As the videos on this site will attest, audiences enjoyed the humor and memorable music this show has to offer. At long last, it is being offered for general release.


Although not reviewed by print media, it was given enthusiastic mention by one of Madison's favorite disc jockeys, and featured in a story on Wisconsin Public Television:
