The stage of the Ambassador Auditorium will come alive on the evening of March 15 as the Maranatha High School Parent Association hosts the school’s annual benefit, “The Show,” a combination of spectacular talent and gourmet food tastings.
The evening begins at 5:00 p.m. with a food tasting by Patina Group Restaurants. Guests will enjoy samples from Kendall’s Brasserie, Nick & Stef’s Steakhouse, and Café Pinot while listening to music out on the fountain plaza. From 7:00-9:00 p.m. “The Show” brings to the stage of the Ambassador Auditorium performances by artists including Linda “Peaches” Tavani, who sold over 9 million records with the Grammy nominated duo “PEACHES & HERB” and had three number one songs including “Reunited” and “Shake Your Groove Thing”. The audience will be moving to her amazing voice and rocking to her incredible band! Herb will make a special guest appearance to sing their smash hit “Reunited” and, for the first time in 30 years, Peaches & Herb will be “reunited” together –a historic moment in the music industry!
The showcase of talent continues with the iconic 1950’s chart-topping recording and television artist, Pat Boone. The line up also contains a number of other amusing performers including the Kamikazi Fireflies, an amazing juggling duo who have appeared on “The Tonight Show” and who hold three Guinness World Records, as well as the phenomenal dance group MUV made up of top dancers in Los Angeles from television’s America’s Best Dance Crew, America’s Got Talent, and the movie Step Up Revolution. Additional performances will include a string quartet from the Colburn School of Music, and a dramatic Scripture presentation by renowned performer Karen Heimbuch. There is truly something for everyone!
All proceeds from “The Show” will benefit the Maranatha Professional Development Fund. Tickets are available online at www.maranatha-hs.org/theshow.
