The ButterFlies Show!

June 14, 3:30 pm.

This program will be in person at Edenwald Library.

The Butterflies Show, starring international performer Sheneatha, is a high-octane, interactive variety show. It’s dynamic concert meets Broadway, meets game show (with actual buzzers for the contestants), meets family reunion! Laugh, sing, and play along as Sheneatha shares inspiration and lessons for success from legendary divas’ lives and performs their hits. Celebrated divas include Chaka Khan, Beyonce, Whitney Houston, Dolly Parton, Ella Fitzgerald and Tina Turner.

Presented by  Sheneatha Frison
