Que sera? An all-Day revue
A night of platinum wigs, fabulous gowns and big lungs comes to Hillsboros Venetian Theatre, 253 E. Main Street in Hillsboro, when Que Sera! Celebrating Doris Day begins at 5 p.m. Sunday, June 30.
Theres still an interest in her, said show producer Joan Merrill. Through the depth of time, the quality of her voice remains. Shes never died, figuratively, from the publics consciousness.
Performer Kristi King sings all Days classics and tells the singers personal story. Some of those who attend may not remember the now 89-year-old Day in her prime, Merrill said, but everyone is welcome.
King and Merrill met in Palm Springs, Calif., and instantly bonded over their appreciation for Days singing and acting. They decided to combine it all into a show and have kept Days fabulousness alive on the road since 2011.
This Hillsboro show is unique because for the first time, the women are bringing in local actor Spencer Conway to do several walk-ons, bringing to life scenes from Days movies.
Kristi does it to honor someone she admires, Merrill said.
The admiration isnt just for Days singing and acting, but for her passion to help animals. Ten percent of ticket and CD sales will go to the Doris Day Animal Foundation.
Through all the money weve donated, we got a personal thank-you letter from Doris Day herself, said Merrill.
The animal foundation has funded a facility to help abused and neglected horses, as well as other animal causes.
Tickets for the two-act show are $32 and can be bought at the box office one hour beforehand or online at venetiantheatre.com.Add a comment
