Due to COVID-19, the live arts have been put on hold for quite some time. Though we have lost momentum, we hope we haven't lost our arts followers, sponsors, and audiences. We are so fortunate to have had a creative team that was able to provide virtual content & mini shows that are able to be viewed from the comfort of your home. Countless hours of prep for video and audio mixing, editing, lighting, music & choreography instruction, website/media managing, etc. have made this virtual arts world possible.
Now, here's to hoping our winter show season stays a GO!

Diners will arrive at their dinner reservation time and choose from a pre-fix menu along with wine and spirits from their full service bar.

'The show last night was great! What was I most impressed with????THE CHOREOGRAPHY was fascinating. The HARMONIES were awesome as well! The sound system was right on the money…no feedback….i could hear everyone…and it was flawless.'
'Thank you for the great show last night. On the way out the door, our son said "I think that was the best one yet". It's very cool to hear that from a 12 year old boy. On the way home our kids were both asking about Motown- what is it, where is the name from, etc. It made me stop and think about what we are able to expose them to through your shows. They can appreciate a world they might not ever know existed, if not for seeing live performances.'
'Great music & dancing - musical direction, sound. All Marvelous!!' - Anonymous
