The Ultimate Vegas Variety Show/Vegas Top Impersonators
Friday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets: $40 Adults, $35 Seniors & Students (plus tax)

Remember all the wonderful Variety shows we all grew up on in the 70’s & 80’s? Now is your chance to see them live and re-created by Las Vegas’ number one impersonators of all time. All your favorite legendary Superstars come alive in An Evening with The Stars. Twin brothers Anthony and Eddie Edwards are the country’s premiere Celebrity Illusionists! Utilizing the latest Hollywood grade make up and prosthetics as well as the fashion designers of the stars themselves- the end result is a non-stop parade of stars on stage that are all at once AMAZING, FUNNY and ENTERTAINING. As one newspaper review noted “they bring such love and attention to recreating celebrities that in many ways it’s better than watching the real thing!”

Advertise your message and your brand before an active, engaged, diverse audience - and enjoy the benefits! The Boykin Series is Wilson Arts' professional performance series, and its playbills are read and retained as keepsakes by an audience with disposable income who come to the historic Edna Boykin Cultural Center throughout the year to enjoy high-caliber music, theater, comedy and dance.  Your ad will be prominently featured in all of the playbills for the 2024-25 season for just one price, and our competitive rates will help you reach this desirable customer base with your company's message!

Information will be available mid- to late-April for Boykin Series 27. If you would like more information as soon as the next season's information is available or if you have questions, please contact Stephanie Pridgen at (252) 291-4329 x107 or by email at
