Men and merriment - for a good cause

It's that time again - the second annual Divos show. The talents of local actors, dancers and performers compete for your vote during this festive funraiser at the Manatee Players March 14.

Here are details from Players' marketing director Denny Miller:

As we all know, no mere man could ever aspire to the same level of adoration as our beloved divas, but we feel that a tiny fun-raiser evening should be made available to feature a few of those idols who have achieved a certain "out of the ordinary" status - these guys have class!

Scheduled to perform are Dan Yonko, Mark Mercado, Dewayne Barrett, Berry Ayers, Mike Kent, Rodd Dyer, Tom Westlake, Mike Nolan, Derek Wallace, Michael DeMocko, Michael Jorgensen, Marc Lalosh and defending Divo Travis Rogers.

Your $1 votes will not only help the theater, but will decide who will succeed Travis Rogers
as our “Divo Grandé 2010," so dust off your checkbook and get your tickets for this evening of merriment today!

Don’t miss this off-the-cuff evening of live entertainment and support the Manatee Players!

The evening of merriment, hosted by Marianne Barnebey, is Sunday March 14 at 7 p.m. at the Manatee Players, 102 Old Main Street in downtown Bradenton.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for Students and are now on sale at the box office by calling 941-748-5875 or online at

Your ticket price includes a “Tailgate Buffet” with the cast during which time they will shamelessly beg for votes!
