A Musical Celebration of the Music of Fred J. Palmisano
Act One Conceived and Directed by John Grimsley
Additional Dialogue by Vatican Lokey
Act Two Conceived by Harry Mayronne, Jr.
Creative Consultation by Luis Q. Barroso
The annual fundraiser for the Fred J. Palmisano Scholarship at the University of New Orleans, this edition was conceived by director John Grimsley as two separate shows. The first act was a paen to the Golden Age of Children's Corner, featuring songs from Freddie's children's shows. Throughout the act, a single red rose (for Freddie) was passed around during each number. The second act focused on the more mature works of Palmisano, featuring international music star Wanda Rouzan and Carnival icon Becky Allen as the focus point of the act.
