The Magnificent 7 Variety Show is brought to life on stage by Joe and Tamra Tinoco, capably assisted by their daughter, Tayla, and a wonderful cast of singers and dancers.

The incredible Mike Walker stars in two must-see shows at Hamners; in Conway Remembered, Walker goes above and beyond the scope of a simple tribute - this man seemingly channels the sound, mannerisms, and real essence of the late great Conway Twitty. In Mike Walker - Lasting Impressions, the highly skilled impressionist delivers more than 50 artists to awe-struck audiences! He expertly tackles everyone from Ray Charles to Willie Nelson, and has been honored with a place in the Rock-A-Billy Hall of Fame. Walker has made numerous television appearances, and had a Top 40 Hit with “Honey Do” singing as himself.
In Thank You for the Music - A Modern Tribute to ABBA, an amazing cast offers their delightful interpretations of the hits everyone loves, including “Waterloo,” “Take a Chance On Me,” “Mamma Mia,” “Fernando,” and “Dancing Queen.” The stage takes on a disco-era atmosphere as the cast dazzles with four-part harmonies, dance, and the magical spirit of that unforgettable Swedish foursome that captured hearts around the world!
Rounding out this sensational theater lineup is Beach Boys California Dreamin’, an epic production that reminds us all why we couldn’t get enough of those talented guys from the West Coast and their contagious sound! “California Girls,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “I Get Around,” “Help Me Rhonda,” and “Surfin’ USA” are just a sampling from the huge catalog of Beach Boys’ music you’ll enjoy.
