Divas entertain at Valhalla
An evening of entertainment and sweet decadence awaits as four divas perform Broadway, country, opera and pop on Friday, June 23, in the historic Boathouse Theater and Valhalla Grand Hall on the shore of Lake Tahoe.
The night begins at 6 p.m. with champagne, light appetizers and conversation in the Valhalla Grand Hall. Then it’s down to the Boathouse Theater where the divas will perform. Michelle Sennings brings Broadway to Tahoe; Sharon Kerrigan sings country tunes; Emily Hammer sings opera; and Gwen Diaz performs the latest pop. Following the performance, it’s back to Valhalla Grand Hall to meet the divas and enjoy decadent desserts from around Lake Tahoe.
Sennings returns this year after a season with the Nevada Civic Light Opera where she performed in “Phantom of the Opera in Concert.” She has performed for numerous shows at Lake Tahoe Community College and is no stranger to the stage at the Boathouse Theater. Kerrigan, the country crooner, has most recently been seen as the judge in the locals’ favorite, “Guilty Pleasures.” In addition to singing with the Lake Tahoe Community College Pops Choir, she has been in four other musicals there as well. Providing a bit of opera to the stage, Hammer returns this year after having completed the role of Christine Daae in the Nevada Civic Light Opera’s production of “Phantom of the Opera in Concert.” She is a classically trained musician who sings in six languages. Diaz, the pop songstress, returns to “Divas and Desserts” this year, having been on our stage twice before. She was the winner of the “Tahoe Superstar” singing competition in 2004.
Tickets are $35 and $30 for members. For additional information and tickets call April Sutton, director of performance events at (530) 416-0337 or (530) 541-4975 or e-mail email@example.com.
