Kavinoky Kabaret - 4/5/19

The sixth floor of the academic building at D'Youville turns out to be a fabulous party room.

The Kavinoky and D'Youville College celebrated a memorable year!

Debbie Pappas and Norm Sham were sensational doing the music of Louis Prima

Kathleen M. Christy D'Youville College Vice President of Institutional Advancement, with Loraine O'Donnell, executive and artistic director of The Kavinoky Theatre. (Do note the heirloom 1920s vintage southwest necklace).

Actor Ben Michael Moran especially enjoyed the auction aspect of the evening.

Techie reunion: former stage manager Krystal Champagne with SM Michelle Eisen; prop artist Diane Almeter Jones, and ASM Erika King -- with Ben Michael Moran, still overexcited from the auction, photo-bombing.

Resident set designer David King also did well at the auction table.
