'Show Boat' docks at the Alhambra with insight

If you thought that the Alhambra Theatre and Dining was just a place to have a great meal and see a fantastic show, well it can be more than just that.  Recently, Gala Night at the Alhambra brought glitz and glamour back to the establishment.  The only thing that was missing on the first Friday evening’s performance of “Show Boat” (or any other first Friday opening night) might have been a red carpet and loads of paparazzi.  As the dress code on the Alhambra website suggests for Gala, people were donned in elegant gowns, black tie, semi-formals and gloves.

Practically everyone was dressed in their Sunday Best, yet there was a reason for the influx attendance of young party people.  It just so happened that Valdosta Open Bible Christian School chose the Alhambra to have their “senior prom.”  What a unique idea!  An elegant place to get dressed-up, have dinner, see a show and take a date out to celebrate youth.  Senior class advisor/teacher Ms Caroline McCarty said that she has been doing this event for a number or years and the students look forward to this festive evening out.

Chef DeJuan Roy did a wonderful job, as he usually does, getting a scrumptious meal together to befit a riverboat show.
