SPRINGVILLE – Springville Center for the Arts will host O’Connell & Company’s award winning performance “DIVA by DIVA: A Celebration of Women” to celebrate the holiday season with songs, readings and humor.
Mary Kate O’Connell, artistic and executive director of O’Connell & Company, created the fast-paced, cabaret-style production for and about women. “DIVA by DIVA: A Celebration of Women” was developed in 1999 as a two week performance honoring Women’s History Month. Now, in 2017, the show is still being enjoyed by audiences throughout Western New York.
O’Connell is described by one of her Divas, Springville native Lynn Thompson, as “dedicated and inspiring … she does a lot for the community.” Attendees should expect a “delightful, refreshing and uplifting show,” Thompson continues. “‘DIVA by DIVA’ truly is a celebration of women.”
“DIVA by DIVA” takes the stage at Carol Mongerson Theater, 37 N. Buffalo St., Springville on Friday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20. Tickets are available online at SpringvilleArts.org or by calling 592-9038.
