Simply Streisand Featuring Carla Del Villaggio Returns to the Milton Theatre August 23 & 24
Save the date!
The show that has been dubbed “the next-best-thing to seeing Streisand herself” by the New York Post is returning to the Milton Theatre for three back-to-back performances this August. From the hair down to the trademark nails, and wearing meticulously detailed replicas of iconic concert gowns, Carla Del Villaggio is Simply Streisand in every way! She will be performing this multi-award-winning show on the historic Milton Theatre stage on Friday, August 23, at 8 p.m., and Saturday, August 24, at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Del Villaggio traveled the country performing her jaw-dropping recreations of Barbra Streisand’s most memorable songs. From Miami to Las Vegas to New York City, her stunning performances include the exciting and high energy vocals of Streisand’s most powerful numbers. Her keen sense of comedic timing and ability to ad-lib add to the overall illusion of portraying the original Funny Girl.
Del Villagio has entertained several times on the Legends Stage, and at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas as the number one Barbra Streisand tribute artist. Don’t miss this show!
Tickets are $20-$25, and may be purchased online at MiltonTheatre.com, via phone by calling 302.684.3038, or at the box office. This event is for audiences of all ages.

Off to the Opera
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society (RBFS), at their Cinema Art Theatre, offers the Metropolitan Opera on HD Live.
This 10-performance season of live opera performances, transmitted in high-definition video via satellite from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, goes to select venues in the US and other parts of the world.
The presentations include multiple viewing angles which change throughout the performance, interviews with performers before the performance and/or during intermission, and behind the scene set changes.
This is an affordable opportunity to see world-class opera here in the Rehoboth-Lewes area. While the operas are presented live from the Met, the 2019-20 presentations at the Cinema Art Theater will be taped and presented about one week after the live performance until the Film Society is able to get the necessary satellite equipment installed
The 2019-20 Met Opera Live in HD season kicks off with Puccini’s Turandot with screenings on Saturday, October 12, Monday, October 14, and Tuesday, October 15.
Advance ticket sales for the entire season are now open, allowing you to purchase advance tickets for the entire season. Tickets are $22 per performance for RBFS members, and $25 for adult non-members. There are lower price tickets available for students and seniors. Information about the entire season and ticket purchases are available online. ▼
