 2007 Cast and Crew Reunion at the Orleans Commentary:

The first CAST AND CREW REUNION was October 13, 2006 and was created by Lou Anne Harrison out of a sense of urgency to celebrate the 5 decades of our history at the Stardust Hotel and Casino before it closed its doors forever. 650 people gathered together to remember, and old friendships were rekindled. The Stardust was imploded March 24 at 2am, and I hosted an implosion party that night on the 34th floor of the sterling club across from the strip. We held our breath as we watched the stardust hotel go down in a dazzling display of fireworks, along with many wonderful memories.

The implosion of the Stardust, and the response from the first reunion, inspired me to organize a yearly reunion. I envision, with your help and continued enthusiasm, a table to represent each one of the great production shows, lounge shows and entertainers whose unique talents made Las Vegas the entertainment capitol of the world.

Thank you for coming because this all could not have done without your contribution to our history, your unrelenting dedication to your craft, and our collective “Cast” commitment to the goal of keeping our history and friendships alive.

2006 Cast and Crew Reunion at the Stardust Commentary:

Fluff LeCoque gave me my first job as a dancer in Hallelujah Hollywood at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas in 1979. I was in rehearsals for Jubilee before the MGM fire, performed in the Lido De Paris at the Stardust, Hello Hollywood Hello in Reno, and returned to the Stardust to dance in my last show, Enter the Night – those were the good old days.

Since then, I have been in special events and promotions for: Cityscape Promotions, Barbizon Modeling and Talent agency, the American Cancer Society, Nevada Ballet Theatre, the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering at UNLV, and Reno Connections.  Most recently, I was thrilled to have had the opportunity to produce the CAST AND CREW REUNION at the Stardust. It brought 650 people together that celebrated five decades of entertainment that has become legendary, along with the phenomenal growth and the history of the world famous strip.

The Second Annual CAST AND CREW REUNION will include the 2007 Las Vegas Showgirl Art Competition. The Art Competition will bring the visual and performing arts together, to preserve the history of the showgirl and the world famous production shows. I invite you to help recreate the magic of Classic Las Vegas. Let’s keep it alive.
