Mama’s Big Ones
Cabaret veteran, actress and Vallarta favorite Amy Armstrong sings the hits of the late, great Cass Elliot (aka: Mama Cass) in this ALL-NEW ORIGINAL show, Mama’s Big Ones. Accompanied by the talented Jean-Guy Comeau at the piano, Amy sings Cass Elliot’s classic songs beautifully. She departs from her usual cabaret-style performance for this show, and presents a very special tribute to the legendary singer, perhaps best known as a member of the popular 60’s group, ‘The Mamas & The Papas’. Amy will bring to light more intimate details about this iconic performer, who helped define a generation with her indelible contribution to the music of the 60’s and 70’s. A very special evening, as only Amy Armstrong can deliver. Mama’s Big Ones plays February 20 – March 28.
‘A Tuna Christmas’
“Tuna, it’s not just for Christmas anymore.” – Aunt Pearl Burrus
Brothers Terry Dale Parks and Tracy Parks, who is also The Palm’s Entertainment Director, resume their hit stage production of ‘A Tuna Christmas’. This yuletide sequel to last season’s ‘Greater Tuna’ opened in December and has been held-over due to popular demand. ‘A Tuna Christmas’ is the second in a series of comedic plays written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. It all takes place 24 hours before Christmas, as the delightfully eccentric characters attempt to cope with seasonal traumas, such as the disaster prone little theatre production of A Christmas Carol and a yard display contest that is being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom! The play is an affectionate commentary on small-town Southern life and attitudes, with a hilarious twist. Like Greater Tuna, the play is notable in that two men play the entire cast of eccentric characters of both genders and various ages. Performances of A Tuna Christmas resume on February 23 – March 29.
