Louis Philippe, well-known local entertainer, and PROP’s Foster Grandparents and Senior Companion programs are teaming up to present a legendary musical variety show.

LOUIS’ LIVING LEGENDS 6 will be presented on Sunday, April 10, 2 PM, at McAuley Performing Arts Center in Portland.   Featuring a magnificent lineup of local “legends” young and old, the show is geared for audiences who will appreciate the memorable songs of “the greatest generation.”

The Living Legends concept was created by Philippe several years ago as a way of connecting a variety of his talented friends, mainly in the local theater circles, to the wonderful senior audiences from nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior organizations, etc., that he regularly performs for.

The concept grew.  The audiences grew.  Now, LOUIS’ LIVING LEGENDS has become a mainstay for the senior population wishing to experience a fun and entertaining event at an affordable price.

This year’s event is being presented by PROP as a way of raising money and awareness for two of its outreach programs.  Foster Grandparents are tutors and mentors to children with exceptional needs in schools, child development centers and homes.  Senior Companions are friendly visitors to isolated elders who also help with transportation to medical appointments and grocery shopping to those living independently.

This year’s lineup includes Kathy Ball, Gwen Basinger, Nancy Durgin, Teresa Dyer, Thomas Ferent, Father Frenchie, Ellen Tucker; “Senior Legends” Marc Mailhot, Rita Smith, Donald Spear, Anna (Mary) Troiano; and “Future Legends” Emily Bashier Davis, Casey Hutchinson and Molly Olsen.

The audience will be graced by a “surprise” guest appearance by the legendary Birdie Googins, aka “The Marden’s Lady.”  Fabulously popular, superbly glamorous and always making a cutting edge fashion statement that only a super model can make, Birdie is a well known standup comedienne who has received rave reviews from all over the State for her one woman comedy show: Birdie Googins: “Accidentally Maine’s Only Supermodel.”

LOUIS’ LIVING LEGENDS 6 is open to all ages.  Tickets are $10 general admission, $15 for special reserved seating.  For reservations and info, contact PROP at 773-0202.
