FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


PATRIOTIC RHYTHMS

A Musical Tribute to Honor Veterans and Those Who Serve

AT STARBRIGHT THEATRE



October 23, 2013

Las Vegas, NV


Mistinguett Productions presents a new show at Sun City Summerlin’s Starbright Theatre on Saturday, November 9th at 7pm to celebrate Veterans Day. 


Patriotic Rhythms is an 80-minute, patriotic extravaganza of music, dance, and military precision that celebrates with heart-felt and rousing recognition all veterans and active military men and women.


Opening the show will be 30 members of the award-winning Palo Verde (AFJROTC) Air Force Junior ROTC armed and unarmed drill teams. Directed by Captain Glen Doughty, they will present the colors, perform the folding of the flag ceremony and an exhibition of both armed and unarmed routines.


This inspiring opening performance will continue with a musical tribute to 9 decades of American music made popular during war time. From the 1930’s and 40’s, the Andrew Sisters’ “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, Bette Midler’s “Stuff Like That There”, and Christina Aguilera’s “Candy Man” as performed by singer/dancers Gabriella Versace, Dejah Padon, Lisa Kunz and Kimba Munford. Male cast members George DeMott, Grant Griffin, Dave Hoover, Enrique Lugo and OLopez will sing “There is Nothing Like A Dame.”


Patriotic Rhythms will feature a special tribute to Red Skelton’s “Pledge of Allegiance” as originally recited on his 1950s TV show.


Jeneane Marie will perform “Stand Strong”, a special dedication to the work of the Blue Star Mothers of Nevada whose mission is to support our troops and veterans.


Several of Sun City’s own World War II veterans will be present to sing “This Is The Army Mr. Jones.” These veterans were recently part of the Freedom Flight to Washington D.C. and made national news by storming the barricades put up by the government shutdown in order to visit the War Memorials.


A foot-stomping and rhythmic dance number choreographed by Enrique Lugo and presented by the Mistinguett Showgirls guarantees to bring down the house.


Completing the show and rounding out this moving music from the 1960‘s through present day will be Tim Mcgraw’s “If You’re Reading This”, Journey’s “Open Arms”, “Impossible Dream”, and “God Bless the USA” to name a few.


When you join the 40-member cast to stand up and salute our veterans you will also support the Blue Star Mothers of Nevada; a portion of all ticket sales will go to their efforts to support active military sons and daughters.
