All In The Family Star To Open - Chipola Center For The Arts

  • Written by 

MARIANNA - From the loveable Gloria, daughter of Archie Bunker on "All in the Family," to Miss Hannigan on Broadway, Sally Struthers is a national treasure.

Struthers will perform her one-woman show at the Chipola College Center for the Arts grand opening gala, a Grand Night, on Sept. 20. She is expected to reminisce about her days as the TV wife of Meat-Head (Rob Reiner) on the popular 1970's sitcom, and also about her real life romance with Elvis Presley. In between, she'll sing a couple of numbers, likely "Little Girls" from her role in Annie and maybe even a John Prine song "Hello in There," made popular by Bette Midler.

Charles Sirmon, Director of Theatre at Chipola, says, "Everyone is going to love Sally. She's a hoot and a great talent." The two-time Emmy winner is also expected to mix with the crowd at the after-party immediately following the show.  The historic event includes an after party with live music and heavy hors d'oeuvres. Dress is semi-formal.

The gala will also feature current Broadway star Tony Yazbeck who most recently played the role of Billy Flynn in the Broadway production of "Chicago."  Yazbeck is expected to sing and tap dance his way across the brand new Chipola stage and into the hearts of the first-ever audience in the new Center. His other Broadway credits include: "White Christmas" (Phil Davis), "Gypsy" (Tulsa), "A Chorus Line" (Al), "Never Gonna Dance," "Oklahoma" and "Gypsy" with Tyne Daly.

Tony has performed at Carnegie Hall and many of the fine nightclub and concert venues in New York City. On Television, he's appeared in the first season of the new NBC hit series "Smash" about the creation of a Broadway musical. His Film and TV credits include "Every Little Step" (feature documentary) and "All My Children" and "As the World Turns."

The gala is the first official performance in the new $16 million Chipola Center for the Arts. General admission tickets—$50—are available at the Chipola Center for the Arts, The Marianna Fitness Center and the Gazebo Café. Call 850-718-2220 for credit card orders, or contact
