Tony Nominee Rebecca Luker to Headline Tennessee Shakespeare Company's Valentine's Gala
Tennessee Shakespeare Company announced today that three-time Tony Award nominee Rebecca Luker will headline its Sixth Annual Valentine's Gala performed at Germantown Performing Arts Center on February 14, 2015.
Ms. Luker's intimate hour-long show to benefit TSC's education program will feature her Broadway and Jerome Kern songbooks as well as stories from her fabled 30-year career.
Rebecca Luker's soaring voice has thrilled Broadway audiences for years. She has been nominated for Tony Awards for originating the role of Winifred in Mary Poppins and for revivals of The Music Man and Showboat. Ms. Luker originated the role of Lily in The Secret Garden, starred opposite Antonio Banderas in Nine, and has sparkled in numerous hit Broadway productions with her portrayals of the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella, Maria in The Sound of Music, and Christine in The Phantom of the Opera.
Just this past month, Ms. Luker received glowing reviews for her work in the rumored-to-be-Broadway-bound musical, The Little Dancer, directed and choreographed by Susan Stroman.
Platinum, Gold, and Silver seating packages (with tiered benefits) for 10 guests are now available by calling TSC's Development Office today at 901-759-0620.
Preferred seating is available in the order in which calls are received. Single tickets, if available, will go on sale in January.
The evening, which is expected to sell out, also includes a lavish buffet dinner, strolling players delivering sonnets to lucky Valentines, TSC's singular live auction, and a post-show dessert reception with photo opportunities with Ms. Luker.
