It’s an all-original, all-singing, all-dancing musical throwback to the heydays of Vegas when Las Vegas-based HIV/AIDS charity Golden Rainbow presents its 23rd annual “Ribbon of Life” fundraising production show. The spectacular will be staged June 28 at 1 p.m. in the Hilton Theater at the Las Vegas Hilton.
The 23rd annual “Ribbon of Life” is a fun dose of old Vegas nostalgia that will have audiences tappin’ their toes and singing along. Scheduled to appear are George Wallace, Human Nature, MTV’s Top Pop Group Mosaic and performers from Chapquist Entertainment, “Fantasy,” “Jersey Boys,” “Jubilee!,” “Ka,” “La Femme,” “Love,” “O,” “Phantom the Las Vegas Spectacular,” “Rich & Famous,” Searcy Entertainment, “Sin City Bad Girls,” “Voci Vegas” and “Zumanity.”
The thrilling show is staged in three acts, celebrating the fun Vegas entertainment traditions of Rock & Roll (complete with Elvis tribute), Supper Club and Motown. Directing are veteran Las Vegas performers Chris Coaley and Shannon Hardin.
