He has scored musical themes for TV shows and specials for Bob Hope, Dick Clark, Joan Rivers and “The Tonight Show.” For three decades he performed all over the world as Clint Holmes’ musical director. He was also both a composer and performer as one of the Las Vegas Tenors.
With a bachelor’s degree from Kent State in dance performance, Tara Palsha’s dream of becoming a principal in a Las Vegas show was realized when she was cast in “Jubilee!” at Bally’s. Tara went on to join the original cast of “Bite” at Stratosphere, “Fantasy” at the Luxor, as Red Riding Hood in “Peepshow” at Planet Hollywood, and lead dancer in “Vegas! The Show” in Planet Hollywood’s Saxe Theater. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Tara plays George’s soon-to-be-ex-wife in A Love Story.
George DeMott, all masculinity and charm, plays the husband who has relationship decisions to make. In his career, George has sung everything from opera―he won the 1993 Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition’s regional finals in Los Angeles and also received the National Italian-American Foundation’s Luciano Pavarotti Scholarship―to pop. Classically trained, George holds degrees from UC Santa Barbara and the prestigious Eastman School of Music. George also has been a featured entertainer aboard Crystal Cruises, showcasing pop-opera favorites as well as Broadway and jazz classics. George easily catches the essence of the classic songs in A Love Story.
In A Love Story Anne Martinez is the distracting love interest for George. Anne has a master’s degree in acting from London’s Central School of Speech and Drama. and toured Europe in the musical Grease; in the U.S. she has appeared as Millie in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Polly in Crazy For You, Amneris in Aida, Lucy Harris in Jekyll and Hyde, Ellen in Miss Saigon, Cinderella in Into the Woods, and Evelyn Nesbit in Ragtime.
