About this business
From Our Editors
Playwright, director, and former writer for The Wallace & Ladmo Show, Ben Tyler revives the iconic children's show in a Desert Foothills play centered around the program's rise to popularity in the '60s. In 1964, the show created Hub Kapp and the Wheels, a mock rock band intended to be nothing more than a comedy sketch. However, when the make-believe musical troupe landed the top spot on the Phoenix record charts, an appearance on The Steve Allen Show, and a gig opening for Metallica, it found itself the target of Hollywood music producers promising fame and fortune. Tyler's nostalgic play abounds with comedy and music that's instantly familiar to the show's diehard fans while giving a unique perspective into its behind-the-scenes happenings. For 37 years, the Desert Foothills Theater has cast adult and youth actors in beloved classic plays and musicals, obtaining 32 ariZoni Theatre Awards of Excellence nominations and winning five awards in the 2010–11 season.
