A Weekend of Story and Song

The Lake Dillon Theatre Company (LDTC) continues its 25th Anniversary Season with a one-of-a-kind Signature Concert entitled Divas and Duets on Nov. 8 and 9 at 7:30 PM in the Henry Studio Theater featuring Summit County favorite Kelly Renoux.

The LDTC is dedicated to bringing a diverse season including a unique music series of concerts and musical revues. The Signature Concert Series features performers from around the country for one-weekend only events. Divas and Duets will feature a collection of songs curated by Renoux from different music genres including Broadway, rock and roll, country, and pop.  Special guests will join Renoux for surprise duets throughout the evening of story and song.

A professionally trained actor and singer, Renoux has lived in Summit County for more than twenty years and has been a featured performer with the LDTC for more than two decades. Her credits at the LDTC include Rita from Lucky Stiff and Patsy in Always Patsy Cline, among more than a dozen others.

Renoux holds a position on the executive team at Copper Mountain and feels fortunate the LDTC provides opportunities for her to perform.

“I am so fortunate to have a career on the executive team with Copper Mountain Resort, but also I get to regularly indulge in my passion for theatre.” Renoux says, “The one thing that kept me from going into theatre full-time was the dread of having to find a new job after each show closed; but I truly have the best of both worlds – I’ve been with Copper for over 20 years now, and I’ve been performing with LDTC and around the county for the same period of time!”

Renoux will be joined by music director and accompanist Wayne Shuker. A New York-based performer and musician, Shuker returns to Summit County after several appearances with the LDTC, including most recently having performed the role of “Paul” in Barefoot in the Park.

“I’ve always had a passion for making music which even led me to pursue a bachelor’s degree in music education. I’ve been lucky enough to get to play on stage but when I’m in between gigs I spend a lot of my time teaching voice lessons and accompanying in New York. I’m thrilled to get the chance to make my professional music directing debut in a place that always makes me feel welcome.” Shucker says.
