Special to the PRESS
Mark your calendar for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, September 13, because that’s when El Paseo’s Season Kick-off event will be held.
Just ask the folks who attended last season’s mystery theatre event at the Hilton. This season, El Paseo invites the public to the SPI Convention Center to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and beverages from the cash bar, and have your photo taken with a “celebrity” or create your own celebrity photo. Bid on the great items in the silent and live auctions, and finally, enjoy the talents of Pippa White and her performance of “Straight On Till Morning.”
In our sophisticated, fast-paced and technologically accelerating age, people are rediscovering the simple, ancient and unadorned art of storytelling. Here is entertainment in its purest and most direct form. “Straight on Till Morning” will give audiences a taste of the many different types of stories that are re-emerging and entertaining and educating not just a new generation, but all generations. Pippa White’s performance will take you to delightful kingdoms of fantasy, as well as surprising realms of non-fiction. You will be entertained by authors you know (such as Mark Twain), and authors you’ve never heard of. You will hear oral histories from World War II, alongside the true story of an 11-year-old girl who saved her father’s life.
