PORTLAND – Local Entertainer Louis Philippe spends much of his weekdays entertaining at nursing homes, assisted living facilities, retirement communities and numerous senior citizen organizations. He also considers himself blessed to have a wonderful array of talented friends who are well-known in the local community theater circles.

The 5th Annual Louis’ Living Legends is Louis Philippe’s way of bringing those two demographics together under one roof for one spectacular show. “It’s my way of saying thanks to all the wonderful people I get to meet in my line of work.” The show will be presented on Sunday, Nov. 23, at 2 p.m., at McAuley Performing Arts Center, 637 Stevens Ave., Portland.

Understanding the financial limitations of the senior population, the show is free for all ages, as a pre-holiday gift (free-will offerings will be accepted).

Starring a magnificent line-up of local entertainment legends, the show will feature Kathy Ball, Gwen Basinger, Sandy Bisson Brown, Leslie Chadbourne, Nancy Durgin, Stephanie Dyer, Ellen Faulkner, Terry Foster and the OLLI Senior College Chorus, Charlie Grindle, Al Hirst, The Lighthouse Jubilees, Gary Schulz, Comedienne Nancy Woodward and “future legends” Josephine Cooper, Rachel Grindle and Molly Olson.

Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 857-9002.
