A one-woman musical comedy titled “Suburban Showgirl,” an all-ages show about life and how to dance it, is coming to Crescent City at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21.
The show, staged at Crescent Elk Auditorium at 994 G St., opens Del Norte Association for Cultural Awareness’ (DNACA) 35th performance series.
“Suburban Showgirl” is written and performed by Palmer Davis, a former Radio City Rockette. She continues her career as a dancer, singer and actress. She has had roles on “CSI Las Vegas,” “Secret Life of the American Teenager,” “Castle,” “Rent” and “What Women Want,” and dance appearances on The Emmys and the Academy Awards.
In the show, Davis plays more than 18 characters to bring the audience into the world of Wendy Walker, a former Broadway performer turned magician’s assistant due to unfortunate circumstances.
“Suburban Showgirl” was composed and arranged by Ross Källing and directed by Cate Caplin. Källing is an award-winning pianist and musical director with a long list of credits. Caplin is a director and choreographer with more than 30 dance championships to her name.
The day before the public performance, Davis will teach a master class at Del Norte High School for Katie Peña’s advanced dance class. Davis calls her workshop “Dansolution — Freedom Through Dance,” developed as a therapeutic approach to dance tailored simply for the joy of dance and expression.
Tickets are $18 for general admission, $15 for seniors 65 and older and youth 18 to 25, and $12 for students.
Tickets are available in Brookings at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies and in Crescent City at Del Norte Office Supply and at the door.
