Prairie Arts Council presents ‘Delval Divas’ on April 29, 30 and May 1 – Shaw Local

The Prairie Arts Council invites the public to join them for Delval Divas, written by Barbara Pease Weber. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on April 29 and 30 and 2 p.m. on May 1 at 24 E. Park Ave. at Princeton.

Stella Wild, MBA; Linda Robertson, MD, PhD; Rosemary Adams, JD/MBA; and Beth Ziegler, MBA have some things in common.

Apart from being educated, successful and professional women, they also share the same address. This isn’t a fancy apartment building or beachfront condo; they reside at the Delaware Valley Federal Correctional Facility, a low-level security prison for white-collar and pink-collar felons.

Add to that a new inmate charged with murder, a missing guard and the threat of being transferred to the unglamorous federal prison of Black Rock and the Divas seek to rescue Delval, solve a murder and reunite at a party. Roman.

Director Ellen Marincic cast Princeton’s Karin Hansen as Stella, Princeton’s Jill Marti as Linda, Streator’s Kathy Hepner as Rosemary, Ottawa’s Bobette Roberson as Sharon, Ottawa’s Kelli Montgomery as Lucille, and Hennepin’s Jennifer Walk as Beth.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and can be purchased online at, by emailing [email protected] or by leaving a message at 815-875-2787.

Tickets will also be available at the door. Doors will open 30 minutes before the show.

Delval Divas is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord theater company.

Prairie Arts programming is supported in part by grants from the Illinois Arts Council Agency and The Princeton Closet.
