On the last evening of the second millennium, a tremendous show was staged on Draugen which probably had no match elsewhere on the Norwegian continental shelf.

Entitled From dino to dollar, this event lasted all evening with Britt Endresen and Kåre Igesund in charge. The gym had been given a stylish look, with beautifully decorated tables and a “welcome committee” in their finest clothes to greet the guests.

Several shifts had rehearsed songs and sketches as well as producing costumes and scenery. The orchestra was conducted by Werner Frøland, who also played guitar and sang, and included Bjørn Tunghaug on the organ and Kjell Leren on bass.
